Emma Raducanu: “I need a tennis break and go on holiday”

Emma Raducanu’s journey in this 2021 has been truly incredible. As a true unknown, the 18-year-old British girl shocked the world of tennis and sports in general and won the US Open at the age of 18, the last Grand Slam of the season.

As it is obvious that Emma immediately rose to the news, British and also world-wide, and the backlash of her successes was strong. Currently in the world Top 25 of the WTA Ranking, Raducanu has struck a series of quite surprising as well as worrying defeats, the last of which came in the first round of the WTA in Linz, where she started from the top seed.

Raducanu lost in three sets to Chinese, out of the Top 100, Xinyu Wang.

From the new coach to the recent difficulties

To the microphones of Sports Yahoo, the tennis player talked about her moment, also confirming the rumors about the new coach. Here are her words: “Everything that has happened to me this season has been a great surprise for me.

I know there are many people who look at what I do or don’t do, but I am aware that all I have to do is stay focused and hug me to trustworthy people. My parents will surely help me do this, I have to keep my feet on the ground and they have a good influence on me.”

Emma talked also about her future:” I have not been on vacation for seven years, the last time was a weekend in Switzerland with my parents, now I want to do something similar.

I need to disconnect from tennis for a few days and I want to be mentally prepared for next season. I am very hungry for success and I want to win and do well. The new relationship with Torben Beltz? (former Kerber coach) I am thrilled to work with him, I believe we will do a great job together.

He will bring me her experience and everything he did with Angie was fantastic, it was fundamental to help her win and achieve success and she is a positive and very nice person and I hope to enjoy this new stage with him.”
