It comes after the tennis champion limped out of Wimbledon in the second round.
After defeating Alison Van Uytvanck in her Center Court debut in the first round, Raducanu then lost 6-3 6-3 to Caroline Garcia in the second round.
Following her loss, the UK No.1 hit back at critics who suggested she was struggling to live up to the hype.

“There is no pressure,” Raducanu said. ‘Like, why is there pressure? I’m still 19. Like, it’s a joke. I literally won a Slam.
While some fans questioned the teenager’s prickly response, former Wimbledon semi-finalist Konta backed Raducanu for standing up for herself.
“She definitely exhibits a modern maturity in her knowledge of herself, what she wants to do and where she wants to go,” Konta told the Daily Express.
“What she said is a fact, she’s a Grand Slam champion and she’s 19, so these are just facts she said.”

“She has every right to say these facts. In terms of pressure, again, the pressure is very well absorbed and dealt with individually.
“I think it’s great if she’s able to digest the situation in that way and see it in a way that it’s just part of the job and actually it’s not a big deal.”
Konta, who retired from tennis last year, also called for patience as Raducanu continues to develop on the world stage.
“Obviously Emma is going to keep working to get better physically and improve her tennis,” she said. “So it’s going to take time and I think we all know that.”
