ROAD TRIP: US Open Edition

• 2 MINUTE READ

We’re taking you back to the summer of 2021 to when a history maker was born; the moment Emma Raducanu experienced what can only be described as a fairy tale ending to a scintillating season for the young Briton.

A moment that will never be forgotten, a moment she shared with an entire nation, a moment that united a nation, and now, Raducanu wants to share this remarkable moment with you.

We teamed up with the reigning US Open Champion herself to take her trophy on a journey across the nation. 

I’m really excited to be teaming up with the LTA to take my US Open trophy on a tour of the country…my hope is that the trophy will inspire [kids] to continue their tennis journey both inside and outside of school.

Get all the latest news and updates from the ‘Emma Raducanu Trophy Tour’: US Open Edition.
