A true visionary. Luisa Chirico (440th) had a conversation with Kristie Ahn (140th) before the US Open started, in which predicted that Emma Raducanu (150th) would become the champion of the last Grand Slam of the season. Not to believe!
It is that in sight is the potential of the British to consolidate in the circuit, but no (or almost no) prognosis put to who started from qualifying as a possible winner of the American tournament.
However, Chirico did: “Raducanu is going to win the US Open. That girl can’t lose games, she’s the best tennis player in the world“he said in a message on August 25, five days before the contest began.

Notably Raducanu’s triumph over Leylah Fernandez (73rd) in the final of the US Open he left historical numbers. Likewise, the consecration of the 18-year-old tennis player allowed Angelique Kerber to maintain a current record in the WTA.
Thus, the tweet that Ahn shared went viral on social networks, mainly due to the astonishment it caused. But without a doubt, Chirico saw a plus in Raducanu that finally became reality.
