BBC published this video item, entitled “Emma Raducanu, #USOpen champion talks to @BBC Breakfast from home 🔴 BBC”
Emma Raducanu appeared on British television’s BBC Breakfast after returning from a record-breaking and incredible debut victory in the US Open tennis championships of 2021. The 18 year old is a natural in front of camera, as well as on court, apparently.
In the interview, viewers learned that the victory was “gradually sinking in a bit more” and that she had only just watched a recording of the final, days after victory. She described how re-watching the tape it “feels like it was someone else pulling off those shots.”
She discusses the medical timeout which occurred close to the end of the match, as well as some of the thoughts and feelings which have come after winning the tournament as a qualifier – the first time this has ever happened in any Grand Slam – and at such a young age.
