Emma Raducanu became the first woman qualifier in history to win the Grand Slam. She won the US Open 2021 and was catapulted into fame and glory. Raducanu became one of the biggest hits in women’s tennis after Maria Sharapova won the Wimbledon 2004 at the age of 17. Raducanu was catapulted to fame as she started getting a lot of attention from the media, and people’s expectations of her became even higher. She had also reached the fourth round of Wimbledon 2021, before retiring due to trouble breathing.
But, It seems like the pressure of performance and some frequent changes in coaches affected her performance. She has also retired from a lot of matches with a lot of injuries. Raducanu’s performance in 2022 has been going downhill, except for one or two great matches she has played. The pressure to perform is piling on the young star as the Wimbledon is getting closer, but lucky for her she is still in the news a lot and so is still increasing her list of sponsorship deals.
Emma Raducanu gets a new sponsor ahead of Wimbledon.
Raducanu will be seeded in Wimbledon 2022 and she will also be one of the players who will receive huge attention during the matches and so HSBC Sports has partnered with world number 11 for a four-year deal. Raducanu was also featured in the commercial for HSBC Sports informing about their partnership. Raducanu won the ‘HSBC Road To Wimbledon’ at the age of 12.
She said, “I just want to be the best version of myself and show the young girls that tennis can bring a lot of possibilities. The HSBC ‘Road to Wimbledon’ experience was very valuable for me because it was the first time I played on those grass courts and definitely played a big part in my learning experience.”
