Emma Raducanu not Guaranteed entry to French Open main Draw

Emma Raducanu is not guaranteed automatic entry into the French Open main draw despite using her protected ranking of 103.

The 21-year-old is currently fifth on the alternates list for Roland-Garros and therefore requires five players to withdraw before the start of the second Grand Slam of the year, otherwise she will need to be awarded a wild card spot or have to go through qualifying.

IRaducanu helped send Great Britain into the Billie Jean King Cup Finals with a 3-1 victory over France at the weekend, earning an impressive three-set victory over Caroline Garcia before defeating Diane Parry in a pulsating contest that lasted two hours and 52 minutes.

The former US Open champion has struggled for form and fitness since her fairytale triumph as a teenager in 2021 and has not since progressed past the second round of a Grand Slam.

She also underwent surgery on both wrists and one of her ankles last May, missing both the French Open and Wimbledon.
