Slow and steady
Raducanu is in no rush to return to the tennis court. She wants to make sure she has fully recovered from her recent fitness issues before making a comeback. The 20-year-old Canadian-born star has dropped to 280th in the world rankings after her last match in April. However, she is now back in the gym after undergoing surgery on her wrists and ankle.
Ups and downs
Since her incredible victory at Flushing Meadows at the age of 18, Raducanu's career has had its fair share of challenges. She has faced setbacks and injuries that have affected her performance. But she remains determined to come back stronger and continue making waves in the world of tennis.
A perfect match
Raducanu's appearance next to the Porsche 356/1 Roadster was quite fitting. The vintage car, which was road certified in 1948, represents a breakthrough for Porsche as their first-ever production car. Coincidentally, Raducanu's second serve has an average speed of 83mph, matching the top speed of the Porsche 356/1 Roadster.
