Roger Federer has previously praised Emma Raducanu.
Raducanu is currently looking for a new coach and Federer has already warned the Brit about having the right people to ‘mentor and coach’ the 18-year-old as she faces new-found pressures within the game.
The youngster went into her Indian Wells match with Aliaksandra Sasnovich where she lost with a score of 6-2, 6-4.
After that defeat, the tennis star was criticised by former British player John Lloyd for recently splitting with coach Andrew Richardson.
“I find it hard to believe Emma made that decision,” he said.
“Look at the celebrations Emma had with Richardson and the team after she won the US Open.
The Swiss tennis star previously warned Raducanu about having the right people around her to cope with both setbacks on the court and social media life.
“I was following Emma Raducanu’s incredible run in Wimbledon and also Naomi Osaka these last few years – it’s been amazing, both of their stories,” he said in September.
“But it hurts when you see what happens and when they don’t feel well.
“The stress is so great. And I think a lot has to be down to social media: the first ten years of my life there was no social media, maybe I had just a website, then the next ten years social media was everywhere.
“We need a revolution. Or at least an evolution of where we are today.”
