VIDEO. Raducanu appears in brilliant commercial from Nike

Snag 72d337c

Emma Raducanu will play her Australian Open first-round against Sloane Stephens next week on Monday or Tuedsday.

There are many expectations on Emma after she won the US Open starting from the qualifications and without dropping a single set for the entire tournament. However, it is pretty clear that the young British player has limited experience on the WTA Tour.

Emma had a rather tough start to the new season after she was completely brushed away by Elena Rybakina in her first match in Sydney when she lost 6-0 6-1.

Given her incredible rise, tennis fans are divided about Emma Raducanu’s chances to stay at the top. Some people think she is a fluke and a “one-slam wonder,” while the majority lean toward thinking she just needs a bit more time to get used to the new environment.

Nike Commercial

Nike had a clever idea when posting a new commercial with Emma Raducanu. In the clip, the British teenager appears playing tennis with all sorts of opinions that are flying around her. The message is: “Just focus and play”

Brilliant!
