What they are saying about Emma Raducanu

Former British Fed Cup player Annabel Croft said Raducanu “may go on to dominate the world of tennis”.

“It was absolutely breath-taking and jaw dropping and one of the most brilliant performances I think I’ve seen in a very, very long time in tennis, if not one of the best that I’ve ever seen,” she told the BBC’s Today programme.

“The fact that Emma Raducanu, we haven’t seen anything of her before Wimbledon, she’s just 18, she had to battle through three rounds of qualifiers.

“But it’s not just that, it’s the fact that she’s absolutely blitzed all of these much higher ranked and much more experienced opponents and they just don’t seem to stand a chance against her.

“You never want to put too much pressure on somebody, but… it does feel like we are looking at someone who may go on to dominate the world of tennis.

“She may well reach the top… I really do feel that she is very, very special.”

“I just wanted to be in the final and I fought for every point. I don’t know how I got that last point in but I’m glad it was.”

Virginia Wade, Britain’s last female grand slam winner at Wimbledon in 1977, said teenager tennis star Raducanu “completely negates” the games of her older more experienced opponents.

“I can’t be more impressed, really it was just a stunning victory, golly,” she told the BBC’s Today programme.

“She withstood everything and it seems Emma just seems to reduce her opponents to nothing, it’s incredible.

“She’s so consistent herself and she keeps coming up with answers and she serves so well and she just completely negates their games.

“It was absolutely so exciting and really exciting that Leylah Fernandez won as well.”
