Emma Raducanu has revealed she will frame the letter she has been sent by the Queen to congratulate her on a stunning US Open title win.
The 18-year-old warmed the hearts of everyone following her with the sensational victory as she became the first British woman to win the tournament in 44 years.
Following the incredible achievement, Raducanu received a letter from Her Majesty congratulating her and it’s now set for pride of place in her household.
After her painful ending at Wimbledon, where she was forced to retire in the fourth round with breathing difficulties, Raducanu bounced back and was on incredible form throughout the US Open.
Deservedly so, she received praise from several of the biggest leaders and names in the world including Queen Elizabeth II.
Her letter read: “I send my congratulations to you on your success in winning the United States Open Tennis Championships.
It is a remarkable achievement at such a young age, and is testament to your hard work and dedication.
“I have no doubt your outstanding performance, and that of your opponent Leylah Fernandez, will inspire the next generation of tennis players. I send my warmest good wishes to you and your many supporters.”
After hearing the news, Raducanu was thrilled and said: “It meant everything to get a message from Her Majesty”
“She’s such a great inspiration and role model for the whole country so to have a note from her…
“I was extremely honoured and very very grateful that she took notice of my tennis. I can’t believe it. I’m maybe going to frame that letter or something.”
Her celebrations are only set to continue and she took to Instagram to post a photo of her holding the trophy with the caption: “we are taking her HOMEEE!!!”
She is no doubt set for a huge reception as she return to Great Britain following the triumph.
