British star Emma Raducanu will face American Shelby Rogers in the first round of the 2024 Australian Open. The match will be played on January 16, 2024. Here's our Emma Raducanu vs Shelby Rogers Prediction.

Emma Raducanu

After undergoing three surgeries, British tennis sensation Emma Raducanu is ready to resume Grand Slam competition at this year's Australian Open. Raducanu's first official tournament of her comeback was in Auckland, New Zealand, where she picked up a first-round win over Elena-Gabriela Ruse before losing to eventual finalist Elina Svitolina in the subsequent round. The heartening thing for Raducnau in spite of that loss was how she fared. Her level was extremely encouraging, and her ball striking was exemplary for the first two sets. Can she replicate that form in her first-round match at the Australian Open?

Shelby Rogers

Rogers enters this year's tournament with a special ranking, just like Raducanu, after being away from the tour for precisely six months. The American played her last match at Wimbledon, where Elena Rybakina beat her in the first round and took time off to recover from an undisclosed injury. Rogers also delayed her comeback after recovering from the injury and completed her wedding vows last month with longtime partner John Slavik. Since that match in London at the start of July 2023, Rogers has not played a competitive tennis match coming to the 2024 Australian Open.

Emma Raducanu vs Shelby Rogers

The last time these two players faced off was at the 2021 US Open, where Raducnau completed the most improbable Grand Slam title wins in tennis history. Sadly, though, Raducanu's body has not allowed her to fulfill her potential. Injuries have held her back, and she hasn't been a regular on tour in the last two seasons. She had to wait patiently for a significant number of withdrawals in order to earn a main draw spot at the 2024 Australian Open, showing how her ranking deteriorated during her period of inactivity. But when healthy, she is an incredible tennis player with a wonderful variety and ability to spot a winning shot. The odds are stacked against Shelby Rogers who hasn't played for half a year and it would be a major shock if she got anything from this match, aside from a A$120,000 paycheck.
