- British No 1 aims to ‘ignore the negativity’ as she returns to SW19
- Jack Draper looking for success after breaking into top 100
Emma Raducanu has said she intends to ignore all negativity and focus on the joy of returning to Wimbledon and making her Centre Court debut for her first-round match against Alison Van Uytvanck.
“I think last year I was so new to it, so I wasn’t even thinking of anything,” the 19-year-old Raducanu said. “This year I’m taking it all as a positive thing. Everyone wants me to do well and is behind me and are going to be cheering. So there’s nothing negative or to feel overwhelmed about because they’re just going to be rooting for me.”
