Emma Raducanu became the first tennis player to win a Grand Slam tournament starting from qualifiers. The very young British tennis player did it even without losing even a partial in the ten games played at the US Open, for a total of twenty sets won and zero lost.
The records signed by Raducanu are so numerous, that it is impossible not to think about the future and all the results that the player born in 2002 could achieve during her career. "I feel great. Everything that has happened in the last 72 hours has been really fun and exciting.
It was challenging, but I can't complain because I had an incredible experience in New York. I am grateful for the things I have done. I am really happy. It still doesn't seem true to me, but every now and then I'll remember winning the US Open," said Raducanu in an exclusive interview with the official WTA website.

"When I was little I never imagined all these opportunities existed even off thecourt (she refers to the MET Gala, ed). It's great to meet people and interact with personalities from different sectors.
At the MET Gala I met experienced people, already realized, and it was nice to know their points of view on things. This experience opened my eyes. I saw the greatest players win Grand Slam tournaments, make their dreams come true, and share great moments with the team, family and friends.
I think it was the most special night of my life. It has been nice to talk to my team, to think back over the last three weeks. Future? I will use this week to unplug from tennis, because the last few weeks have been intense yet rewarding.
I worked hard and a whole week of rest will be needed. I'll probably go back to work on Monday. As for my schedule, I believe I will play the Indian Wells tournament, but I don't know yet. I will definitely go back to London before playing my next tournament."
