Swedish former tennis player Mats Wilander, who used to be number one in the world, spoke about the 19-year-old British tennis player Emma Raducanu, champion of the US Open 2021, who is not going through a good present after winning her first Grand Slam tournament.
“He still doesn’t have the respect in the locker room. You don’t earn respect by winning a major and not winning anything else, ”said the Swede in an interview.
He further added: “For her to get the fourth round of Wimbledon was amazing, but I think she needs a few more matches under her belt for her opponents to see that she can be goodeven on his worst day.
“Why did she win? Some of the players she came up against on the road, like Maria Sakkari, this was her chance and they couldn’t step up.” Wilander closed by referring to the reasons for Raducanu’s victory at the US Open.
It should be noted that the 19-year-old tennis player has not had great results since her victory on American soil, as she has a record of two wins and four losses.
