Emma Raducanu, the 2021 US Open champion, admits that she rarely reads content posted about her on social media since she thinks that most of the time, it’s just untrue allegations. When Raducanu, 19, won the US Open last year, she made tennis history by becoming the first qualifier to ever win a Grand Slam.
Raducanu transformed from a young tennis prodigy to a world-class athlete and one of the most well-liked athletes in Britain in just two weeks. To be really honest, I hardly read anything, but Raducanu told the Evening Standard that “neverthing I hear is almost always false.”
Raducanu was defended by Nick Kyrgios
Raducanu had a very difficult start to the year, suffering from many ailments and dropping out of competitions early. Raducanu only managed a 1-2 record during the Sunshine Double, and numerous past players publicly attacked the 19-year-old Brit.
The 2022 runner-up at Wimbledon, Kyrgios, defended Raducanu. “Why are former players suddenly sharing their opinions on our stars? I adore A-Rod and concur that everyone should relax with their rackets and other equipment, but geezus, I just read an article on a former female player mentioning Radacanu; sorry, but she is already a much greater name,” Kyrgios tweeted in late March.
Raducanu was questioned by the Evening Standard about her choice to back Kyrgios at Wimbledon. He has always been incredibly generous and kind to me. The way he’s been with me, sure, he’s been incredibly good. He was supporting me after Wimbledon last year, before the US Open.
It’s clear that people want to see Nick, according to Raducanu. Raducanu is getting ready to begin her hard court tour of North America at the Citi Open in Washington the following week.
