Raducanu ‘hungry’ to improve after US Open fairytale

US Open champion Emma Raducanu said she is "hungry" to improve her tennis and plans to continue competing this year after her stunning success at Flushing Meadows, reports AFP.
Raducanu became Britain's first Grand Slam champion in women's singles since Virginia Wade in 1977 and did not drop a set during her run to the title in New York. "I have a few days' rest and recovery (coming up), I think needed after the last seven weeks," she told American
broadcaster CNBC on Tuesday. "But then I am straight back to training and hungry to get better and come back out and play some more tournaments." Raducanu could receive a wild card to the WTA Tour's prestigious Indian Wells tournament in California next month. She has attracted praise from Queen Elizabeth II, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and appeared at New York's flagship Met Gala fashion show this week.
