Emma Raducanu: "After the victory I never saw the US Open trophy"

The young tennis player Emma Raducanu is probably the biggest and most beautiful surprise in the world of tennis in 2021. The 18-year-old British woman, just a few months ago, surprised the world with the sensational victory of the US Open: the tennis player, starting from the qualifiers, beat everyone he got in his way and without losing a single set.

Obviously the tennis player has conquered the limelight and has become a star in her country and beyond. The former number 150 in the world caught everyone unprepared and in some ways even herself. After the victory in Flushing Meadows, she was immediately released in the first round in Indian Wells while she reached the quarter-finals in the WTA tournament in Cluj.

Raducanu anyway lost in two sets against the other very young player, the Ukrainian tennis player Kostyuk. During a recent interview with the microphones of Tennis head Emma Raducanu revealed an interesting background on the US Open trophy.

Emma Raducanu and the anecdote about the Us Open

Emma Raducanu told of having delivered the trophy won at the US Open to the LTA (Lawn Tennis Organization), the organization that manages tennis in Great Britain. Here are her words: "The LTA has done so much for me and I wanted them to keep the trophy as a sign of recognition for how much they have helped me, let's say it's a small gift.

They have played a huge role in my tennis growth. Trophy ever at home? I've never actually seen my trophy after New York, so I don't want to go there and see it again. Let's say now I don't know if it's there, but I still have the address (she laughs).

It is a special gift for me and is a sign of appreciation." Returning to her tennis situation, Emma recalled:" For me it is important to get used to the rhythms of the circuit and to play week after week, it is important for me to be able to maintain a good physical condition. It is something that I will also focus on at the end of the season."
