British professional tennis player Emma Raducanu MBE was born on November 13, 2002. She achieved her highest position of the career, No. 10 by the Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) on 11 July 2022, and is the current British No. 1. Since Virginia Wade won the Wimbledon Championships in 1977, Raducanu is the first British female to claim a Grand Slam singles title.
Raducanu grew up in London after being raised in Toronto. June 2021 marked the beginning of her WTA Tour career. With a wildcard entry at Wimbledon, ranked outside the top 300, she reached the fourth round in her first major tournament. When Raducanu defeated Leylah Fernandez in the 2021 US Open final without dropping a set throughout the competition, he became the first singles qualifier in the Open Era to win a Grand Slam title. It was the second Grand Slam tournament of her career; she holds the Open Era record for the fewest majors played before winning a title.
