Ty for clarification. Raducanu is 100% a Romanian prime name so i knew that at least her father is Romanian. She even has a Romanian look. Hope she does well in the future. I will try to keep an eye on her.

Ps: It wasn't necessary to translate an article from Romanian to english.

Re: Emma Raducanu

Last year when Emma played the U12 Orange Bowl where she lost in the 1st round to Whitney Osuigwe (who's since won a G4 title this year and pushed the semi-finalist Levashova this week at the GA tournament in Mexico) & she ended up winning the title, but it's also worth noting that Emma then won 10 straight matches to win the U12 consolation draw. Obviously not as good as the actual title but still a great effort.

Re: Emma Raducanu

This was her nearly 2 years ago - super game! Really need to see how she's developed her game since then.
