Emma Raducanu news: British No 1 got ‘stuck in’ during her well earned trip to Singapore
British sensation Emma Raducanu hasn’t had the greatest start to her first full year on the WTA Tour – she bowed out during the opening round of the Sydney Tennis Classic and only managed to make it to the second round at the Australian Open – but she’s not been wallowing in self-pity, she’s been exploring Singapore.
Because the 19-year-old failed to make it past the first week at the ‘Happy Slam’, her schedule was wide open and she took advantage of this and went to the Southeast Asian country to train and take in the sights.
The British No 1 posted a series of photos from the trip on her social media accounts with the caption: “Singapore!! We worked, we got stuck in (literally), enjoyed the culture, improved and had so much fun here. Thank you to everyone’s warm welcome, you made it even more special. I’ll be back!!”

Then she followed up the English caption with a message in her mum’s mother tongue of Mandarin, thanking Singapore for the memories she’d made there and promising that she’d return to the country one day.
Not only did she spend her time training and improving her tennis while she was in the country, but she also found time to eat chili crab at a hawker centre which isn’t the easiest meal to eat as she highlighted on her twitter page, visited well known tourist spots including Haji Lane and Ion Orchard, and took a photo at the iconic Merlion Park.
She also managed to find the time to take a picture outside two of the brands she’s an ambassador for – Dior and Tiffany & Co – who had their stores directly next to each other.
Raducanu will hopefully be ready and rested enough to be able to go back on the tour and show the tennis world what she’s made of and prove to her doubters that the US Open wasn’t just a fluke.
She will return at the Abierto Akron Zapopan in Guadalajara in Mexico on February 21, before she remains in the country to play in the Abierto GNP Seguros in Monterrey the following week.
