Emma Raducanu to ‘frame’ letter from ‘role model’ Queen after stunning US open victory


    She told the BBC: “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.”

    The win is even more staggering considering the 18-year-old only finished her A-levels exams three months ago.

    Even more spectacularly, Raducanu failed to drop a single set through her three rounds of qualifying and seven main-draw matches en-route to the final.

    Following her straight set victory against fellow Canadian teenager Leylah Annie Fernandez, the Queen sent Emma a lovely note.

    The message from Queen Elizabeth II 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.
