Emma Raducanu has enjoyed a career filled with highs and lows so far.

The British star stormed to Grand Slam glory aged just 18 but has since struggled to adapt to the brutal demands of playing on the WTA Tour regularly.

Raducanu celebrated her 20th birthday on Sunday meaning her teenage years are now behind her.

Therefore, we’ve decided to look back on the most defining moments of the Brit’s short career to date.

What are Emma Raducanu’s most defining career moments so far?

Reaching the fourth round at Wimbledon

Having started 2021 ranked outside the top 300 in the world, Raducanu made her Grand Slam debut as a wildcard at Wimbledon last year.

Despite receiving minimal media coverage in the build-up, the Brit advanced to the third round courtesy of convincing wins over Vitalia Diatchenko and Marketa Vondrousova.

This made Raducanu the youngest British female singles player to reach the third round since Elena Baltacha in 2002.

Things would get even better for Raducanu as she then went on to defeat Sorana Cirstea in straight sets on No. 1 Court.

Though Raducanu was eventually forced to retire in the last 16, her performances captured the hearts of the public and many predicted that Britain had a future star on their hands.
