Britain’s young tennis star Emma Raducanu revealed that she is now trying her luck in hand painting.
The 21-year-old has missed three Grand Slams this year, including the upcoming US Open, because of consistent struggles with injuries.
The fourth and final Grand Slam of the year is set to begin on Monday where players from all over the world will participate to showcase their talent.

Raducanu emerged onto the scene two years back when she lifted the US Open after beating Canada’s Leylah Fernandez in the final with a score of 6-4, 6-3.
The victory was an even more special one considering that the Toronto-born started the competition through a qualifying round.
However, since then, Raducanu has not managed to get much success on the tennis field, largely because of fitness concerns.
This year, the former world number 10 has only participated in one mega-event—the Australian Open—where she was knocked from the second round after losing to America’s Coco Gauff in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 7-6.
