Emma Raducanu dismisses top seed tag ahead of season-ending Linz tournament

“Girls’ tennis has always been not a huge gap between players that are in the top 20 or top 100, or even 150. 

“I think it’s just a few matches that gives you confidence, I think everybody can play so there are no easy matches and everybody can win if you believe in yourself and believe in your shots.”

Raducanu’s mother Renee travelled to Austria with the 18-year-old and her Chinese heritage prompted plenty of interest in the country. 

Raducanu sent a message in Mandarin to her Chinese supporters from New York, and Wang admitted there was lots of news about the Brit in China due to her link to the nation. 

“After she won the US Open there was a lot of news about her because obviously her mum is from China,” Wang revealed.

“I think that’s also inspiring for the Chinese players because someone Chinese has won a grand slam. I think that’s a really good thing.”
