Emma Raducanu US Open 2021

‘Emma Raducanu is going to win multiple Grand Slams,’ says Greg Rusedski


Emma Raducanu is set to have an ‘exceptional future’ and will become a multiple Grand Slam champion according to Greg Rusedski.

The 18-year-old Brit stunned the tennis world with her remarkable and history-making triumph at the US Open earlier this year, becoming the first ever qualifier to win a Grand Slam.

Raducanu was playing in just her second major event after impressing her home Wimbledon crowd with a surprising run to the fourth round on her main draw debut.

Following her achievements already this year, Rusedski believes Raducanu will go on to achieve far more in her career and could reach the pinnacle of the women’s game.

“I think she’s going to be a multiple Grand Slam champion. I think she has the potential to be a world number one,” said Rusedski.

“What she has done in her first two majors, there’s very few that have done. She got to the fourth round of Wimbledon in her first major and then she’s gone on to win the US Open.

“There’s only three other female players that have got to the fourth round or better in both events in their first two majors.

“Chris Evert, who was world No 1 and multiple Slam winner, Jennifer Capriati, world No 1 and multiple Slam winner, and Monica Seles, so she joins that category of elite superstars.

“We’ve never seen this in the game before, for someone to come through qualifying and go on to win a major, so her future is going to be exceptional so long as she can stay healthy, put the right team around her. I think her future is going to be incredible.
