Emma Raducanu just made a wrist bandage actually look chic – see photos
This year hasn’t been Emma Raducanu’s year for her craft: recently she withdrew from the upcoming summer tennis tournaments due to an ongoing wrist injury, and released a heartfelt statement about operations on her wrists and ankle.
But the stylish tennis star – who has global ambassador for Dior on her list of sartorial accolades – hasn’t let injury stop her from making public appearances and looking as fashionable as ever. On May 23 the 20-year-old proved her wardrobe style is as savvy as her style of playing when she stepped out for the reopening of the George – the latest private members club to reopen under the helm of Richard Caring.

I tried my best to manage the pain and play through it for most of this year and end of last year by reducing practice load dramatically, missing weeks of training as well as cutting last season short to try heal it, unfortunately it’s not enough”.
