Emma Raducanu has earned more recognition for her historic US Open triumph as it was revealed her outfit from that victorious campaign will be displayed at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Rhode Island. This month, the 18-year-old from Bromley became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam and also the first British woman to win a major singles title for 44 years when she defeated Canada’s Leylah Fernandez in the Flushing Meadows final. “A legendary run: preserved,” tweeted the Tennis Hall of Fame.
Roger Federer has called for more to be done “to help, coach and mentor” Emma Raducanu and other young tennis players so they are better able to cope with criticism and abuse.
The 18-year-old has committed to playing in the first major of the year despite strict quarantine rules in Australia
