Raducanu admits to 'never having tried tequila' ahead of Guadalajara debut

British tennis sensation Emma Raducanu will be making her debut at the Abierto Akron Zapopan in Guadalajara this week, and the 19-year old has been familiarizing herself with some of the country’s exports.

Being the top seed at the event, Raducanu will be under pressure as she faces Daria Saville in her opening round match. Nonetheless, the reigning US Open champion has been getting to grips with some of the local Mexican drinks and admitted she has never tried tequila before.

In a video for Esto online, the 19-year-old can be seen donning a sombrero as she discusses her drinking habits.

Likening the representation of beer or whisky for Brits to the association between Mexico and tequila, the interviewer asks: “When you’re having a good time, what kind of drink do you like to have?”

"Well actually I don’t really drink,” Raducanu replies, laughing at the question.

“I’m kind of boring. But yesterday Gustavo gave me a virgin margarita.”

The young Brit, who turned 19 last November, admitted she had never tried tequila so couldn’t tell whether or not it was in the drink.

She continued: “I didn’t know if it was real or not, you know? Because I’ve never had tequila before so I couldn’t really taste the difference.”

Raducanu is playing for the first time since the Australian Open, where she crashed out in the second round to then World No.98 Danka Kovinic.
