Emma Raducanu speaks on her interest in New York Stock Exchange

Rising British star Emma Raducanu is taking a week off following her US Open victory but she is expected to return to training next week. Raducanu, 18, became the first qualifier ever to win a Grand Slam after beating Leylah Fernandez in the US Open final.

"After the US Open I wanted to give myself this week to completely switch off from tennis because it's been an extremely intense but rewarding seven weeks," Raducanu told the WTA website. "But I've worked very hard to finish on such a high with the US Open, a whole week off was needed.

"I know I'll get back to work probably Monday or early next week to get back to training again. Schedule-wise, I'm not sure. Maybe Indian Wells, I don't know. I'm going back to London before my next tournament for sure."

Raducanu still on cloud nine

While in New York, Raducanu decided to visit the Wall Street. "I am on cloud nine but so excited to be here on New York Stock Exchange. It was one of the places on my bucket list before leaving New York and I'm just so excited and grateful to everyone who made this possible," Raducanu told CNBC's Closing Bell programme on Tuesday.

"I have a few days' rest and recovery (coming up), I think needed after the last seven weeks but then I am straight back to training and hungry to get better and come back out and play some more tournaments."

Raducanu revealed she always had a big interest in the New York Stock Exchange. "It is something I have been studying at school, in my A-levels," Raducanu said. "I just always had a keen interest. My parents were both in finance and to see it live is incredible."

Raducanu was ranked at No. 150 in the world before her US Open victory but now she is enjoying a career-high ranking of No. 23 in the world.
