Emma Raducanu says she 'knows what she is doing' with regard her coaching situation and insists she won't be rushed into a decision. Raducanu has already been through four coaches in a year since she made her breakthrough at Wimbledon last summer. Even winning the US Open didn't convince her to stick with her coaching set-up as she searches for something that works for her personally. Last April Raducanu ended a brief relationship with German Torben Beltz and she is currently working without a dedicated coach. She is receiving support from the LTA, with former British number one Jeremy Bates taking on a key role. However, as she prepares to make her debut at Nottingham - which is her first tournament in the UK since Wimbledon last year - Raducanu said she is comfortable with her coaching situation for now.

"Personally, I think I know what I'm doing," she said. "I'm trusting what I'm doing and the work I'm doing.

"I'm still 19 and I've already won a Slam. "So I can take my time and put things in place because I know my motivation isn't any less." "I want to take my time with this decision," "Nothing has changed, I still have the same people, good people, around me. I don't want to rush into anything." Emma Raducanu has climbed to world number 11 since winning the US Open in October, although her form has certainly suffered due to the extra scrutiny. She will be the second seed at Nottingham behind world number five Maria Sakkari.
