Earlier this year 15 year old Emma Raducanu embarked on her first sortie into the world of senior tennis. Unsurprisingly the first attempt, in March, ended in the Qualifying Rounds. But a week later Emma won through Qualies and made progress to the quarter finals in the Nanking Main Draw. By May she was winning a $15k event in Israel without dropping a set!
Emma clearly finds this level of tennis a comfortable place to be, having repeated this success in Antalya, Turkey last week. Now, she will no doubt be considering how to make the step up to $25k events and beyond, whilst maintaining her education at her Bromley base. Such rapid progress is always exciting, especially from one so young, and it will be fun for us to watch! But not as much fun as it will be for Emma to do!
