Social Slice: Raducanu has a new fan, Murray quizzes his Twitter followers
On today’s Social Slice, Emma Raducanu has attracted a new fan and Andy Murray asks his Twitter followers for advice.
British wildcard Emma Raducanu continued her memorable run at Wimbledon after defeating Sorana Cirstea to book her place in the last 16.
The 18-year-old will take on Ajla Tomljanovic on Court One tomorrow after becoming the youngest British woman ever to reach the last 16 at Wimbledon.
