Interestingly, soccer star Marcus Rashford retweeted her post and expressed his opinion on the same. He stated that a similar thing happened to him as he injured himself during a crucial match when he was playing in the under 16 category for his national side, England.

“It happened to me playing for the national team in U16s against Wales. I remember it to this day. No explanation for it and it never happened again,” tweeted Rashford.

 

Rashford was clearly trying to motivate Raducanu. Recalling his own such experience, the Manchester United star suggested such a situation may not rise again in the future and urged Emma to continue focusing on her trade.
