“I’m happy if I can inspire a young boy or girl to pick up a racket. But I think it’s just as important to keep your education going. If anything, it’s one thing I want to stand for,” said Raducanu. “I think doing your education properly helps so much because it develops you as a person and benefits you in all walks of life. Tennis is a big part of my life, but there’s a lot more to it than just playing. [Besides,] once you hit 35, if you’ve only played tennis, it’s very difficult to get into something brand new.”

For Raducanu, education isn’t just about academics, it’s about personal growth. She believes it shapes individuals, benefiting all aspects of life. While tennis is crucial for her, she highlights the richness of various other things beyond the court. She aspires to be more than just a tennis player, advocating for a life that has many experiences all in one place.

One take at a time

In a world where player rivalries dominate social media conversations, I am someone who prefers to enjoy the skills showcased on the court rather than be involved in feuds over the greatness of players. Right from my early childhood, I have been engrossed by the legendary rivalry between Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. It turned me into a ?Fedal? fan and eventually, when I graduated from college, this fandom created an interest in covering their exploits on the court.
