The rise of Emma Raducanu as told by her Welsh coach

Emma Raducanu’ss meteoric rise to stardom has arguably been one of the most compelling stories of 2021.

It’s a rise which has perhaps caught many off guard, but Welsh coach Matthew James isn’t remotely surprised by the progress of his former prodigy.

James, who originally hails from Flintshire, has worked with some of the biggest names in the game, including both Andy and Jamie Murray, and was also part of the Team GB set-up at the Tokyo Olympics this summer.

He said:

People really enjoy watching her, but are also completely inspired by her focus and her concentration, and being able to really forget losing points and just focus on the next one and that’s what coaches are always trying to hope for.
