Telegraph, 12 Sep 2021
British tennis sensation Emma Raducanu has spoken about achieving an "absolute dream" by winning her first Grand Slam at the US Open on Saturday.
In a post-match press conference she detailed her worries mid-match about how her cut knee may have disrupted her rhythm. She then went on to praise her opponent, Canadian star Leylah Fernandez, for her "outstanding" performance.
Raducanu won 10 matches at the tournament after coming through qualifying – all of them in straight sets – and made history by becoming the first qualifier ever to win a Grand Slam.
