Emma Raducanu is the biggest shock of Wimbledon 2021- in a positive way! No-body thought that the British 18-year old wildcard would make it to the second week of the Championships. She was also the only British to make it to the second week in the 2021 edition.
Raducanu has a very different and interesting story. She was born on 3 November 2002 in Toronto, Canada to a Romanian father, (Ian), and a Chinese mother (Renee). She then moved to London when she was just 2, and started playing tennis at a young age of 5. She was a sporty kid and tried horse riding, swimming, tap dancing, basketball, skiing, golf, go-karting and motocross.
Whenever she is free, Emma loves spending some time in Romania with her grandmother. She made her WTA main draw debut at the Nottingham Open in 2021 courtesy a wild card. Not much was known about her until Wimbledon, she was ranked outside the top 300 before the tournament and was given a wild card through the British quota. Although she prefers to play on hard courts, her impressive baseline game bodes well with grass too.
Emma Raducanu’s Boyfriend
Well, to everyone’s disappointment, Raducanu is very young so she isn’t married and their is no information via her socials that indicate that she has a boyfriend! The British is currently focused on just tennis and the results are for everyone to see.
She made it to the second week of Wimbledon on her grand slam debut, which in itself is a huge thing. She sure has the potential to become a future champion and is on the correct path to glory.
