Emma Raducanu reveals her Premier League team as she gears up for Stuttgart Open in Tottenham shirt

"And now it’s just about trying to get it better as soon as possible.

"It completely stopped me from moving. It’s tough not to be even able to chase the ball.

"It was compromising every shot I had to play. So yeah, it’s very disappointing when you’re out there playing a rubber for your country and you feel like completely redundant.
