‘An explorer round-up!’ Emma Raducanu gives us a glimpse of…. After the headache.
Emma Radacanu took to Instagram on Friday to share a gallery of snaps of her recent exotic travels.
The tennis player, 19, who has found herself world famous since winning the US open in 2021, enjoyed beach holidays as well as VIP trips to exclusive sports events.
Emma beamed as she donned a life jacket on a boat in middle of the clear ocean before riding a horse on a tropical beach.
The star could then be seen in Dubai as she was snapped in front of the famous Burj Khalifa.
After enjoying the sights the athlete then sat down for what appeared to be a swanky meal as she dined alfresco.
Emma wore a gold sweater, with chic Bardot neckline, for the outing as her dark hair cascaded to her shoulders.
Later the pro sat courtside at a basketball game as she donned a jersey with her surname emblazoned on the back.
Then on home turf Emma looked chic in an all white ensemble as she larked around at London’s Borough Market with a mystery man.
She captioned the snaps: ‘1/2 yeaaarh explorer round up’.
It comes after the tennis champ limped out of the Wimbledon tournament in the second round.
After beating Alison Van Uytvanck on her Centre Court debut in the first round, Raducanu then lost 6-3 6-3 to Caroline Garcia in round two.
Following her defeat, the British No 1 hit back at critics who have suggested she is struggling to live up to the hype.
‘There’s no pressure,’ Raducanu said. ‘Like, why is there any pressure? I’m still 19. Like, it’s a joke. I literally won a Slam.’
While some fans have questioned the teenager’s spiky response, former Wimbledon semi-finalist Konta backed Raducanu for standing up for herself.
‘She definitely presents modern maturity in her knowledge about herself and what she wants to do and the direction she wants to go,’ Konta told the Daily Express.
‘What she said is a fact, she is a Grand Slam champion and she’s 19 years old so they’re literally just facts that she said.
‘She has every right to say these facts. In terms of pressure, again pressure is very much absorbed and dealt with individually.
‘I think it’s great if she’s able to digest the situation in this way and see it in a way that it’s just a part of the job and actually not a big deal.’
Konta, who retired from tennis last year, also called for patience as Raducanu continues to develop on the world stage.
‘Obviously Emma is going to continue to be working to improve physically and improve her tennis,’ she said. ‘So that’s going to take time and I think we all know that.’
