"It’s such an honour to receive such a great award,” Raducanu said, as quoted on Women's Sports Alliance. “There have been some incredible past winners, so for me to be part of this is a really incredible achievement.

It’s been a really crazy year and such an incredible journey bit I’m looking forward to what’s ahead (in 2022)." Raducanu is aware that now there is an exoectiin on her. "I'm not sure of other people's opinions of me," Raducanu said.

"It's going to happen, pressure is a privilege. I thrive under the adrenaline, I hope. So for me, I don't really think about other people's opinions or expectations. The only ones I have are that of myself, to improve and get better."

Raducanu, 19, insists she is staying humble after her US Open victory. "For me, I am just going about my business," Raducanu noted. "I take the train sometimes. I am doing the same journeys I used to. I feel like I am the exact same person.

I will go about everything I used to do. I don't see why I should change the things that got me that title. I am still enjoying it."
