Emma Raducanu says ‘I still can’t get a court!’ as kids turn to tennis after her win

EVEN Emma Raducanu is struggling to line up a court because so many kids are turning to tennis since her sensational US Open victory.

Told of the stampede yesterday, the 18-year-old sensation said: “Can I say — I can’t get a tennis court either. I still can’t get a court!”

Emma, who trains near her home in Bromley, South East London, has spoken to Boris Johnson about encouraging more children to play.

Yesterday she added: “Even if it’s not tennis, even it’s to be a doctor, I just want to inspire them to dream big and anything can happen.

“I just want to get across the message that you can be a normal kid and go to school and do normal things and still achieve results.”

Talking about her record-breaking win, Emma said: “It’s gradually sinking in a bit.

“Last night I actually rewatched the final and tried to relive a couple of the moments and remember how it felt.

“It’s funny because when I was watching it, it almost feels like, ‘That’s not me who’s playing and pulling off some of those shots’. It feels like it’s someone else.”

THE boss of a lookalike firm is searching for a double of Emma Raducanu.

Andy Harmer, 42, says doppelgangers for the tennis ace — and for returning football legend Cristiano Ronaldo — could earn £400 for a few hours of work at events and parties through lookalikes.co.uk.
