This magazine has been blessed in recent times thanks to the number of teenagers who have been hogging the limelight in various spheres of activities around the world; it always gives us an opportunity to write about them and also serves as an inspiration for the readers of this youth magazine. The latest teenage sensation has been Emma Raducanu; winner of the U.S. Open and even more sensational was her victory in straight sets in the women’s final of the tournament.
If coming events cast their shadows before then Emma’s U.S. Open win should not surprise ardent tennis followers. After all, at Wimbledon, the Grand Slam event preceding the U.S. Open during the calendar year, Emma was a wildcard entry as a consequence of being Britain’s number one ranked player and she managed to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon. The U.S. Open was even more surprising as she came through the qualifying rounds to wrest the title, beating Leylah Fernandez 6-3, 6-4.
