Judy Murray described Emma Raducanu's withdrawal from the Wimbledon mixed doubles draw as 'astonishing'. The 2021 US Open champion had confirmed her participation alongside the former world No. 1 in what would have been a spectacle for the local audience in Murray's final match at SW19.
Raducanu has had a notable singles career. She has already reached the Round of 16 in the tournament, following three straight-set victories, including wins over players like Elise Mertens and Maria Sakkari along the way.

Judy Murray slams Raducanu

Raducanu's team issued a statement this Saturday announcing that due to physical discomfort, the 21-year-old will not be able to participate in the anticipated doubles: "Unfortunately I woke up with some stiffness in my right wrist this morning, so therefore I have decided to make the very tough decision to withdraw from the mixed doubles tonight. I'm disappointed as I was really looking forward to playing with Andy but got to take care."
Shortly after, sports presenter Marcus Buckland expressed regret that this marks the end of Murray's Wimbledon journey and he won't be able to take to the court again at the All England Club: "Astonishing news that Emma Raducanu has withdrawn from her mixed doubles match with Andy Murray," Buckland tweeted.
"She's citing soreness in her right wrist. It means Murray has played his last match at Wimbledon. Oh dear!" reports the Express. To which Judy Murray responded with a succinct and telling: "Yes, astonishing."
