Raducanu back to the court
“I got back on court a few days ago. I was feeling pretty good about myself and my game, and I am very excited to compete again. All the opportunities I am getting have been very fun, but where I really want to be is on the tennis court, as I’m just thriving out there," Raducanu said a few days ago.
Raducanu won a total of 10 matches over three weeks in New York to capture the US Open title as a qualifier. "I mean, it's an absolute dream. You just have visions of yourself going up to the box, hugging everyone, I mean, celebrating.
That's something that you always think of, you always work for," Raducanu said shortly after winning the title. "For that moment to actually happen, yeah, I'm just so grateful for my team that are here with me, the team that are back home, the LTA, every single person who supported me along this journey."
Raducanu always dreamed of winning a Grand Slam but when it happened she couldn't believe it. "Yeah, the visions I had, they were from pretty early on, I would say. I've always dreamed of winning a Grand Slam.
You just say these things. You say, I want to win a Grand Slam. But to have the belief I did, and actually executing, winning a Grand Slam, I can't believe it," Raducanu noted.
