Britain’s tennis star Emma Raducanu reacted joyfully after news emerged that she was amongst the top three female athletes searched online last year.
The 20-year-old is currently spending time on the sidelines as she continues to recover from an injury concern.
The news was indeed surprising considering that Raducanu remained inactive for most of the year.
The Toronto-born reacted joyfully on her Instagram story with a caption ‘a lot of love’ after it was revealed that she was the third-most female athlete searched online last year after the former world number one Iga Swiatek and the reigning US Open champion Coco Gauff.
During her time off the court, Raducanu went through multiple surgeries on her wrist and ankle in order to regain full fitness.
It was because of this reason the former world number 10 ended up missing three out of the four Grand Slams in 2023.
Her only appearance in a major tournament this year came at the Australian Open where she was knocked out after losing the second-round tie to Gauff in straight sets with a score of 6-3, 7-6.
Raducanu broke onto the scene in 2021 when she won her maiden and till now only Grand Slam title after beating Canada’s Leylah Fernandez in the final with a score of 6-4, 6-3.
