Emma Raducanu sent worrying coaching warning by Maria Sharapova’s ex-mentor

Joyce enjoyed a remarkable stint with the Russian star, helping her on her way to become one of the greatest players of her generation.

He added: “If she goes to the Australian Open next year and goes out early, people will say it’s because of the coach.
