TENNIS ace Emma Raducanu hopes to make her opponents work in shorts at the French Open.
The reigning US Open champion and British No. 1 is on the cover of Elle magazine, where she is interviewed by Marvel Eternals actress Gemma Chan, 39.
Emma, 19, plays Belarus’ Aliaksandra Sasnovich, 28, today after her win over Czech Linda Noskova, 17.
Raducanu is well acquainted with Sasnovich, having previously faced her at the Indian Wells Masters in October.
On that occasion, Raducanu was beaten 6-2, 6-4, so she needs to improve if she wants to progress in Paris.
Relatively new to clay, Raducanu is poised for her first full season on the surface.
Before 2022, she last played on clay at the 2018 French Open Juniors, where she reached the second round.
The July/August issue of Elle UK is out on June 8th.
