Emma Raducanu: Former US Open champion does not receive wild card into French Open

Emma Raducanu has not received a wild card into this year’s French Open, meaning she is likely to enter qualifying next week having already pulled out of the Internationaux de Strasbourg.

The 21-year-old former US Open champion is currently the fourth alternate into the main draw at Roland Garros but the Briton could be forced into playing qualifying at a Grand Slam for the first time since her historic US Open triumph in 2021.

There were also surprise exclusions for two-time Grand Slam champion Simona Halep, Caroline Wozniacki and two-time French Open finalist Dominic Thiem.

French Open organisers historically only hand out wild cards to French players and they have continued with tradition by dishing out a total of 30 to homegrown talent across the main draw and qualifying, with only Ajla Tomljanovic, Sachia Vickery, Nicolas Moreno de Alboran and Adam Walton being the exception.
