Emma Raducanu will play her next tournament as the newly-crowned US Open champion and is sure to have a huge amount of new fans watching her play from then on.

The 18-year-old surged to a spectacular triumph in New York, winning her first Grand Slam title at only the second attempt, without dropping a set in the process.

She has gone from complete unknown to global superstar in a matter of weeks and much will be expected of her as she looks to build on the remarkable success that she achieved at Flushing Meadows.

Raducanu has not confirmed when she will be back on court but says that it could be at the Indian Wells Masters next month.

Speaking to the WTA, she said: ‘I think after the US Open I wanted to give myself this week to completely switch off from tennis because it’s been an extremely intense but rewarding seven weeks. But I’ve worked very hard to finish on such a high with the US Open, a whole week off was needed.

‘I know I’ll get back to work probably Monday or early next week to get back to training again. Schedule-wise, I’m not sure. Maybe Indian Wells, I don’t know. I’m going back to London before my next tournament for sure.’

The event held in Indian Wells, California is also known as the BNP Paribas Open and gets underway on 4 October, so it is likely to be over two weeks before we see Raducanu back in action.

The US Open champion is also likely to take part in the Transylvania Open in Cluj, Romania during October due to her family background.

Raducanu’s father is from Romania, so she will likely take the opportunity to play in her father’s home country from 25 October.
