Andy Murray hails 'well grounded' Emma Raducanu as he sends BBC SPOTY winner warning


“I’ve spoken a little bit about Emma since the US Open and I do really want to be careful to seem to be giving her advice or my opinions on her and her career, what she should and shouldn’t be doing and how she should deal with certain things,” the current world No 134 told Eurosport.

“But yeah, there will be certain stages in her career, certainly around Wimbledon and the grass-court season where the expectations are extremely high. And there’ll be a lot of pressure there.”

Murray himself garnered media attention when he played his first Wimbledon main draw in 2005, getting to the third round as a wildcard ranked at world No 312 before losing from two sets up with cramping and fatigue – a similar story to Raducanu’s after her All England Club run ended with a retirement in the fourth-round as she suffered with breathing difficulties.

The former world No 1 admitted that Raducanu’s sudden media attention was on a “much greater scale” after she achieved something previously impossible in the sport, but felt positive about her ability to handle the pressure, calling her “well-grounded”.
