A little over a year after becoming the first qualified player to win a Grand Slam tournament at the US Open, Emma Raducanu received the medal of the Order of the British Empire on Tuesday at Windsor Castle.
Despite a very disappointing 2022 season, the phenomenon Emma Raducanu was honored. She had struck the spirits at 18 last year, after winning 10 matches without dropping a single set before to win the US Open, thanks to her victory against the Canadian Leylah Fernandez in the final. Thanks to this unprecedented feat, the English tennis player was named a member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) by King Charles III on Tuesday during an investiture ceremony at Windsor Castle.
” I was very happy to receive this honor today from the hands of His Majesty the King, I am extremely grateful “, she said.
