WATCH: Raducanu returned to action in Abu Dhabi, where she lost to Ons Jabeur.

Emma Raducanu has appointed a new coach, Sebastian Sachs.

According to British press, the pair have begun working together in preparation for next season.

The 20-year-old from Great Britain had not had a coach since Dmitry Tursunov left her team a few weeks following the US Open, seeking a longer-term agreement.

Sachs is the former coach of Belinda Bencic, who Tursunov is now coaching. The 30-year-old former pro has also previously worked with Victoria Azarenka and Julia Goerges.


Sachs is Raducanu's third coach this season, and her fifth in 18 months. Raducanu has changed coaches frequently since turning pro in 2021—she also split with Nigel Sears following her fourth-round run at Wimbledon, declined to extend Andrew Richardson's appointment following her title victory at that year’s US Open.

A season of frequent physical problems saw her rarely get back-to-back wins during events. She returned from a wrist injury layoff this week to play Ons Jabeur in Mubadala World Tennis Championships, an exhibition event in Abu Dhabi.

Raducanu, who recently received an MBE from the British crown, is ranked No. 76 and is scheduled to begin her 2023 season in Auckland.
