Tennis News: 2022 US Open champion Emma Raducanu reveals she didn’t like tennis so much she could cry on the court.
The 19-year-old is experiencing a watershed moment in his experience on the pitch as he is tipped to become one of Britain’s most promising players since three-time Grand Slam winner Andy Murray.
In fact, the world number 10 has made significant progress by several steps, having won the 2021 US Open title by beating Canadian Leylah Annie Fernandez in the final.
However, the British tennis player is also struggling to live up to the expectations he gave to the public for the first time.
To the Evening Standard, the 19-year-old explained why he wasn’t too worried after losing in the second round of Wimbledon in 2022, having reached the fourth round of the same Grand Slam last season.
“I’m not even going to play the tournament because I had an injury which prevented me from playing for almost three weeks. I just served again two days before my first round game. It was enough for me to I feel suffocated,” admits Raducanu.
However, the Romanian-Chinese tennis player does not always feel relaxed and recalls less positive experiences.
“When I was 5 or 6, I was almost the only girl in most classes,” Raducanu recalls. “I remember clinging to the railing, hiding under my mother’s skirt.”
“I don’t want anything to do with it, because I’m shy. I literally cried on the pitch during the game.”
The British tennis player was also criticized for the tweet of support for Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios.
Raducanu wrote ‘NK’ during Wimbledon, but Kyrgios was accused of assaulting his ex-girlfriend.
In return, he said, “For me, he was always a kind and generous person. He supported me after Wimbedon last season, before the US Open, so like he always supported me, yes, he was very good. People really want to see Nick play.”
