British tennis queen Emma Raducanu donates Nike outfit from stunning US Open victory to Tennis Hall of Fame


EMMA RADUCANU has donated the outfit she wore during her US Open triumph to the Tennis Hall of Fame.

Raducanu became the first British woman to win a major singles title for 44 years when she beat Leylah Fernandez in the final earlier this month.

The 18-year-old sensation decided to commemorate this historic feat by displaying her Nike attire at the tennis pantheon in Newport, Rhode Island.

The Tennis Hall of Fame tweeted: "A legendary run: preserved.

"Thank you, @EmmaRaducanu, for donating your memorable #USOpen outfit to the ITHF collection!"

Raducanu's outfit joins thousands of tennis memorabilia pieces that date way back in the 1880s.

That includes kit worn by some of the sport's biggest legends like Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King and Tracy Austin.

This is also where tennis enthusiasts can find Roger Federer's hologram, which showcases the Swiss legend's moves and has him talking about his passion for the sport.


Raducanu will soon get to extend her legacy after climbing 128 places to 22nd spot in the world rankings.

The British No1 decided to compete in the Australian Open even though that means she will spend Christmas away from home.

Raducanu said: "Whatever needs to be done to be able to play the Australian I'll do.

"It's not even in my mind, I just want to be at the Australian Open, and want to compete there so whatever it takes to do, I'll go."
