"I’m in a really good spot": Emma Raducanu feels confident ahead of Wimbledon 2024

Britain’s young tennis star Emma Raducanu has revealed that she is in a very ‘good spot’ ahead of Wimbledon 2024. The third Grand Slam of the year is set to begin on Monday, and players from all over the world will participate to showcase their talent at the highest level and secure the ultimate prize.
Raducanu was once regarded as the next big thing, especially when she lifted the US Open title at the age of 18 in 2021. She defeated Canada’s Leylah Fernandez in the final in straight sets with a score of 6-4, 6-3. The victory was more than just special, as the Toronto-born star started the competition through the qualifying round.
Since that triumph, the Toronto-born star has struggled to maintain her form and fitness. She returned to the court earlier this year after spending nearly 12 months on the sidelines and, since then, has produced some good results on the court. Raducanu recently took part in Eastbourne International, where her journey finally ended. She lost in the quarterfinal to Russia’s Daria Kasatkina in straight sets with a score of 6-2, 6-2.
Despite that exit, Raducanu was largely pleased with her performance. She registered her first win over a top-10 player in the world and defeated America’s Jessica Pegula in the second round with a score of 4-6, 7-6, 7-5. Talking to the media about her performance, the 21-year-old stated that she does not feel tired after participating in the mega-event and feels in a ‘good spot’ ahead of the third major competition this year.
“I wasn’t tired at all. I was feeling really good,” she said. “I think I just dealt with the circumstances badly. Yeah, I was very inflexible in my approach. That’s my honest reflection of the match. But physically, I’m in a really good spot. I’m fine. I just need to learn to be more willing to adapt. I hadn’t really played many matches in that level of wind.”
