The 20-year-old British player captured the attention of the tennis world with her quick rise to the WTA top 10 ranking and also to win her first Grand Slam in 2021. She created history by becoming the first qualifier to go on to win the tournament. Unfortunately, she faced a few injuries and hit rock bottom by leaving the top 200 list. Fans have not been shy to take a dig at the youngster and have since criticized her.“Next season I’ll be back. The fact they are still talking about me even though I’m not at these events is just a compliment. Someone told me ‘worry when they are not talking about you.” said the British in an interview on BBC as a reply to all the hate she was receiving.

While some athletes may crumble under the weight of constant criticism, Raducanu handles it with remarkable grace and poise. Despite her absence in recent events, the 20-year-old is taking all the criticisms as compliments.
