Emma Raducanu is gearing up for a four-week routine of hard physical work to prepare for the rigors of touring next year.

The British No.1 has booked mid-November to mid-December for the first proper off-season training block of her career. The physical gap between her and the powerful Marta Kostyuk was evident in Friday night’s tough quarter-final loss at the Transylvania Open in Cluj.

While the Ukrainian is only eight months older, it was clear how she has benefited from many more years of concentrated work on the tour. Sure enough, he turned professional at age 15, when Raducanu was still contemplating GCSEs.

The Kent teenager recognizes that this is an area she has yet to catch up on and part of that process will be going through a full period of training when she gets the chance. She complained of feeling lethargic while taking just three games away from a former youth rival.

Raducanu still plans to finish his season at the Upper Austrian Open in Linz starting a week on Monday and then will start the difficult yards after taking a week off to recharge.

“I’m sure I’m going to do a full offseason,” he said. “After Linz I will probably have a week off just to refresh myself mentally and physically. It’s going to be my first preseason and from what I’ve heard it’s four very physically difficult weeks so I just want to prepare for that and next year. ”

His only commitment at that time will be to play an exhibition match at London’s Royal Albert Hall on November 28.

A good performance in Linz could help her finish the season in the top 20 in the world, and her two victories in Romania will have pushed her up one or two places to 21 or 22. So little has Raducanu played on the tour compared to your peers who It’s hard to say where your true ranking is. At Wimbledon and the US Open he was in the top 20. He hasn’t been that way in his two tournaments since.

Raducanu still does not commit to her training plans, but it is far from certain that she will end up being mentored by Spanish Esteban Carrill, with whom she had a trial against Cluj.
