Emma Raducanu turned to Tottenham striker Harry Kane as the big British tennis star looks to bounce back from a poor 2022 season.

Raducanu hasn’t won any WTA Tour events in 2022 and hasn’t made it past the second round of any of the four majors in a disappointing year.

The 19-year-old, who rose from world No. 10 to world No. 76, has struggled with form and various injuries since her fairy tale U.S. Open triumph in 2021.

Raducanu was recently forced to end her 2022 campaign prematurely due to a wrist issue, which saw her withdraw from the Billie Jean King Cup final.

Although she recently teamed up with Jez Green – Andy Murray’s former coach – to address her lingering injury issues, Raducanu is again looking for a new permanent coach to work with after parting ways with Russian Dmitry Tursunov.

Murray has warned Raducanu that she won’t improve her tennis if she continues to cut and change trainers as often as she has thus far.

But as she continues to search for a new permanent manager, Raducanu has now turned to England captain and Spurs striker Kane as a mentor.

The 29-year-old, considered one of the best strikers in world football, will soon travel to the World Cup in Qatar with England’s first match on November 21.

Kane has plenty of experience at elite level and has had plenty of ups and downs himself – winning the Premier League Golden Boot three times and the World Cup Golden Boot – but also losing the Euro 2020 final and the Champions League final.

He scored 260 goals in 406 games for Spurs and according to Athleticism he is now Raducanu’s mentor, with the pair having ‘several conversations’ so the tennis star can ‘ask for career advice’.

Raducanu was also keen to learn from Kane “how to approach the scrutiny that being in the public eye brings”, with the pair also believing they have “shared ideas”.

Speaking in June, Raducanu said: “One of my favorite footballers is probably Harry Kane because he’s the England captain and he’s such a good role model.

“He is super professional and takes everything to the nth degree. I really feel like I can learn from this.

Raducanu is a self-proclaimed Tottenham fan and has been spotted training in a Spurs home shirt before.
