Emma Raducanu: I’ll do whatever I need to do in order to compete at Australian Open

Published

World No. 22 Emma Raducanu has acknowledged that she will do everything that needs to be done in order to play at the Australian Open. The Australian Open could feature strict regulations for this players who want to compete at Melbourne Park and Raducanu is willing to comply.

Raducanu, 18, is set to make her debut at the Australian Open at the beginning of the next season. “Whatever needs to be done to be able to play the Australian Open, I’ll do,” Raducanu explained at ‘The Homecoming’, an LTA Event held to celebrate the UK’s US Open champions.

“To me it’s not even a thought or like a battle in my mind. I just want to be at the Australian Open, and I want to compete there, so, whatever it takes to do, I’ll go”.

Raducanu is a quick learner
Raducanu became the first qualifier in tennis history to win a Grand Slam after beating Leylah Fernandez in the US Open final.

“I just feel like I’m learning and absorbing all the knowledge that I’m gaining like a sponge and soaking it all in”. Raducanu continued. “That’s what I really want to do. I’m not focused on results, I’m focused on how much I can learn because that’s what’s really going to drive me forward”.

Renowned tennis coach Nick Bollettieri was impressed with what he saw from Raducanu at the US Open, comparing her footwork to Roger Federer’s. “Emma has all the basics, but what caught my eye was her remarkable footwork.

It is the basis of everything else. Roger Federer has sublime talent and strikes, but the basis of his game is footwork. Watch it, but you’ll need slow motion. Emma’s ability to hit tough balls has been exceptional during this US Open.

Hitting a ball well is one thing, but consistently returning tough hits sets you apart. These are big positives,” Bollettieri said.

Simona Halep and her millionaire boyfriend, Toni Iuruc, have arranged every single detail of the wedding that is scheduled in September 2020, just after Simona will finish the US Open. After ending her 2019 WTA season on the 4th place, Simona Halep went in Maldive with Toni Iuruc.

The couple spent beautiful moments there, but what’s even more important is that Simona couldn’t be happier. “Simona Halep gets maximum relaxation time. She does, every day, maintenance sports. She tortures Toni Iuruc with endless bike rides, but she enjoys it big time.

She is, I think, happier than ever. And in the evening, Simona being an incurable romantic, she gets to take the walks that she dreamed about for years, long walks, on the beach, holding hands with her fiance”, a friend of Simona told wowbiz.ro.

And those are not the biggest news. A close acquaintance of Halep’s family confirmed that the two lovebirds will unite their destinies after the 2020 US Open. “They will get married next year in September after she will participate at US Open 2020.

The event will be fabulous, at a luxury restaurant from Constanța and, normally, it will be organised respecting the Aromanian traditions”. , the source said to wowbiz.ro. Moreover, the source gave details about the wedding preparation’s current state.

“All their relatives will participate, tennis personalities, from sport, there will hundreds of guests, maybe a thousand. Everything is already settled and Simona Halep is delighted that she managed to arrange all the details.

Obviously, there are still some unsolved things, like the dress, Toni Iuruc’s wedding suit, but, largely, everything was arranged”.

Simona Halep crushed Serena Williams and won Wimbledon using an edge: her boyfriend

Published

on

Last year, Simona Halep won the first Wimbledon of her career, a rare achievement in any player’s arsenal, but, according to her former coach, Daniel Dobre, she used a secret weapon that helped her raise the Venus Rosewater Dish above her head, following the memorable 6/2, 6/2 triumph over Serena Williams, who failed to record her 24th Grand Slam.

That hidden advantage was nothing else than her boyfriend, Toni Iuruc, who had been cheering her from the stands of an official tournament for the very first time. Daniel Dobre, the coach who helped Simona add her second Grand Slam to her trophy case, unveiled how Toni boosted the Romanian first racket’s performance at the All England Club.

“At Wimbledon, Simona had a very good atmosphere in the team. She met Toni, who accompanied her for the first time during a tournament, so, emotionally, she was in a very good mood. She gave it all, like she usually does, but in a more relaxed way.

The draw was difficult, but in the end, it was an incredible tournament,” said Daniel Dobre on a Tennis with an Accent podcast episode.

Simona Halep has a very powerful personality
Besides talking about Simona Halep’s psychological edge she gained from the presence of her lover, Daniel Dobre, who was dismissed after Darren Cahill returned to team Halep at the start of 2020, explained how Simona’s strong spirit makes her a very independent and straight-forward person.

“She has a very powerful personality. Every decision regarding coaches and her career, she took by herself. It’s weird because in Romania parents decide everything. When she was 14-15 years old, Simona said she wanted to go to Bucharest to train, then that she didn’t want that coach anymore, but the other,” said Dobre.

“She said ‘my back hurts, I’ll go and have a breast reduction surgery. She is a very inspired person when it comes to making these kinds of decisions. In the 12 years I have known her for, she was never late and she doesn’t forget what you had talked with her even if months or entire years have passed”.

The ‘Easy on Me’ hitmaker said that the ‘Jungle Cruise’ actor is the one person who she’d be starstruck to meet and she “nearly fell off” her chair when she received a bouquet of flowers from him as an apology for not being able to be in the audience for her recent ‘One Night Only’ TV special, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

She said: “Someone I’ve never met, that I think I would actually cry, is The Rock. I was the biggest wrestling fan when I was younger! He sent me flowers because he and his wife couldn’t make it to my show and literally I nearly fell off me chair!”

Adele was quick to stress she doesn’t have a crush on the ‘Moana’ star.

She added: “He always paints his little girl’s nails and stuff like that, doesn’t he? He’s so cute. I wish he was my dad… Oh yeah, it’s not like I – I haven’t got a crush on him or anything. It’s just, he’s amazing. He’s just incredible, I want him to be my mate. I want him to be my friend.”

The 33-year-old star is a big fan of the former WWE star, one thing she doesn’t enjoy is ‘Real Housewives’ and she fears her “brain will die” if she starts dedicating time to the Bravo franchise.

Speaking during a ‘Power of Make-Up’ video on NikkieTutorials’ YouTube channel, she explained: “I know a lot of people love it, but I can’t. My brain will die, I can’t…I don’t know who any of them are, so I don’t feel like I can start from the beginning when it’s been on for so long. I’m not going to lie, it doesn’t work for me.”

Adele said she had once tried to watch ‘Real Housewives of New Jersey’.

She added: “One time I did watch one episode of ‘The Real Housewives of New Jersey’ when they were all like literally killing each other, but it was too much, I was like I can’t, I can’t watch. I’d rather watch a wildlife programme.”
