Emma Raducanu served reality check as Sloane Stephens makes goading comment after defeat


“I know people compare us, but all we’ve got in common really is that we’ve both won the US Open. If you think about the way she won it, that’s pretty backwards compared to mine, and that makes it so hard to manage,” the American said post-match.

“Also she’s carrying the whole country, so that’s different to my game entirely. So she’s got to learn to manage it and figure out what’s for her and what isn’t. Because she is so young it’s definitely a long road, so there’s going to be a lot of ups and downs but she has a lot to learn.

“She hasn’t been through much of anything yet. There’ll be some crazy experiences and the hardest part is trying to prove you’re good enough to even stay where you are. The more you try to prove, the more the emotions show. I don’t just mean this about Emma but we’ll be here when she comes down, too.”

As we have seen over the last few months, the Grand Slams bring out the best in Raducanu and she was delighted with the victory on Margaret Court Arena.

“To get this win means a lot,” the 17th seed told BBC Sport.
