The 18-year-old, Emma Raducanu became the first British woman to win a singles Grand Slam title since Virginia Wade’s 1977 Wimbledon triumph with her stunning run from qualifying to victory at the US Open in the summer. According to Simona Halep, she is a great talent and has a bright future. She also states that the British should cherish this player as she can go to great lengths in the future by her potential and talent.
Simona Halep says, “Britain should cherish the success of Emma Raducanu”
Emma Raducanu was playing in just her fourth Tour-level tournament in Cluj, so she is still a novice learning her way, albeit with a sizeable piece of silverware in her trophy cabinet. Halep feels Britain should celebrate the teenager’s amazing success in New York because it will take time for her to adjust to the rigors of the WTA Tour.
“What she achieved is unbelievable and it’s all credit to her because she played so well and she played so many matches. I think her mentality was very strong and also her game. She showed great tennis, very fast, very close to the baseline and I think her movement was also great,” said the Romanian star.
“The pressure is not great for a player, even if she’s so young she feels the pressure is normal, everybody does. You guys better enjoy her results, her tennis, the way she is, because she’s super nice, and wait for her to grow up at this level because she just jumped after doing something great.
“She will probably need some time to see how it is every week and then she will become much stronger.”
“She’s already achieved the Grand Slam title so she’s able to achieve everything. She now has the experience of winning the biggest tournament in tennis so I think she can easily make the top 10 and I think sooner than everyone else thinks because she’s already close to that.
“She has a bright future and for sure she will be one of the best players in the world.”
