A wild card entry to the tournament, Raducanu is yet to lose a set on her Grand Slam debut as she beat Sorana Cirstea 6-3, 7-5 on the No.1 court at Wimbledon.
The youngest Briton to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon in the Open era, Raducanu paid tribute to the fan support she received during her match against Cirstea.
“I think I did pretty well. I was down 3-1 in the first set but I just tried to keep my cool. You really got me through – in the second set and the first set, the whole game really. “
World No. 338 Raducanu’s extended run at Wimbledon must also surprise her parents.
“It’s funny because when I was packing my bags to enter the bubble, my parents said to me, ‘Aren’t you packing too many match kits?’ Said Raducanu.
“I think I’ll have to do some laundry tonight but I think they have a laundry service at the hotel so I’m fine.”
She doesn’t just clean up financially at Wimbledon.
“Exceptional performance for a [wild card] at 18 but, perhaps more impressive, I saw her cleaning up her own garbage at the end of the game. Don’t see this often. Great habit. Don’t change, “Blake said of Raducanu, who will now face unranked Australian Ajla Tomljanovic on Monday.
