Raducanu's management confirmed the pairing to Daily Mail.

If the partnership goes well, Tursunov will continue working with Raducanu through the US Open Serie and the Flushing Meadows major. The US Open is set to start on August 29th.

Former Top 20 player Tursunov is a highly-respected coach who guided Anett Kontaveit to the Top 5 before their partnership ended earlier this year. Tursunov has served successful coaching stints with Aryna Sabalenka and Elena Vesnina as well.

A year ago, the 150th-ranked Raducanu made history as the first qualifier—male or female—to capture a Grand Slam singles title in New York. Raducanu did not drop a set in 10 matches en route to her maiden major title.

With the US Open looming a month away two Grand Slam champions—Raducanu and Naomi Osaka, who split with coach Wim Fissette last week—have made coaching changes.

Last April, Raducanu ended a six-month partnership with coach Torben Beltz. 

Since the split with Beltz, Raducanu, who has gone through several coaches in her career, has worked with LTA head of women's coaching Iain Bates and spent time working with Jane O'Donoghue at Wimbledon.
