Chris Evert on Emma Raducanu: "She will be permanently in the world Top Ten"

Former tennis legend Chris Evert has commented positively on the situation regarding the career of British tennis star Emma Raducanu. Emma is undoubtedly one of the most awaited and well-known tennis players on the women's Tour.

After the historic victory at the US Open 2021, many of her expected her consecration but the reality was quite different. The British tennis player, who arrived in Flushing Meadows on that occasion as a true unknown, surprised everyone and showed her great talent.

Subsequently, Emma, however, was not confirmed and had to deal with problems related to constant injuries. In recent weeks the tennis player has shown some progress and in Indian Wells she surrendered, however struggling, to world number one Iga Swiatek.

Women's tennis legend Chris Evert spoke to Eurosport microphones, commented on the tennis player's growth and made interesting statements. Here are her words: "We are talking about a tennis player with a good physique, she is particularly athletic and balanced but she has had to deal with several injuries in the last year and certainly this is something that worries her.

She's a bit prone to injuries, but I think she'll eventually find that mental toughness again that we've admired throughout her 2021 US Open adventure."

After that success in New York Emma has always struggled in the Grand Slams and has never gone beyond the second round of the tournament.

The former tennis player then continued: "I think that in situations like yours, the physical and the mental part go hand in hand. I think the mental part is very important, perhaps even more important than the physical aspect." Finally, very important praise for Emma: "Lately I've seen a more determined Raducanu, I understand it from her eyes and I don't think it's a momentary thing.

I think she's here ready to compete with all the best, I'm also thinking of Coco Gauff . I think Emma Raducanu will be a permanent Top Ten female tennis player."
