Emma Raducanu has already won a slam (the 2021 US Open) despite the factor that she was still a teenager. In addition, when Emma conquered the US Open she did it starting from the qualifications and without dropping a single set in 10 matches. Nevertheless, the British sensation keeps on facing criticism because she has been struggling to find continuity in her performance.

Tennis legend John McEnroe spoke highly about Emma Raducanu to say:

“Don’t ask if Raducanu is going to be a good player because she is already a great player.

No one wins a major if they are not a great player and hopefully she has belief, but a lot has changed for her since then. I’m not close to her. In fact. As a matter of fact, I’ve never spoken to her. I hope to have the opportunity soon because she is obviously a breath of fresh air. She is a very sweet girl, a beautiful girl and plays great tennis. What’s not to like.

It has been hard to watch her struggling, but I don’t know if she needs time. She needs the right stability and people around her and I don’t know what’s going on there.

You don’t go through a tournament where you don’t lose a single set and beat some of the top female players and not be a great player.”

Now ranked no.10 (career-high), Raducanu played her last match on the 29th of June when she surrendered to world no.48 Caroline Garcia 6-3 6-3 in the 2nd round in Wimbledon (draw).

Currently, during this year Emma owns a 9-12 win-loss record.
