Emma Raducanu all set to become a member of All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club

After her US Open 2021 success, Raducanu is likely to become a member of the All England Lawn Tennis & Croquet Club. If this happens, she will be the youngest member of the club and thus, it is a big milestone for her.

Generally, the All England Club grants its membership to only those players who have won the Wimbledon Championships. However, the British star can be an exception as she performed brilliantly in New York and brought glory to her nation. She is expected to join the club by the end of this year.
