"I'm really motivated" - Raducanu excited to play on centre court at Wimbledon

Reigning US Open champion Emma Raducanu will start her Wimbledon run at Centre Court on Monday against Alison Van Uytvanck.

She's struggled to emulate her US Open form so far this year, but it hasn't stopped Raducanu's excitement at playing in front of a home crowd. Raducanu described it as "special" to be able to play Centre Court, alongside defending champion Novak Djokovic and two-time winner Andy Murray.

She said:

"I think that's a pretty cool line-up. Just to be included amongst those names is special in itself. I never would have thought that. I'm obviously looking forward to getting out there."

Emma added:

"I definitely feel like game-wise I back myself pretty much against anyone. I feel if I really put my mind to it and commit then I can be pretty good. So I'm definitely looking forward to the match. It's definitely going to be a tough match-up, but every match is at this level. I'm still ready to go."
