Emma Raducanu may participate under the British flag, but neither of her parents is of British ancestry. The 19-year-old was born in Ontario, Canada, on November 13, 2002, and gained citizenship after relocating here when she was just two years old.
Who are Raducanu parents?
Ian Raducanu, her father, is of Romanian origin, and Renee, her mother, is Chinese.
Raducanu began playing tennis at the Bromley Tennis Academy when he was five years old, and the pair moved to the UK just two years after delivering their daughter.
They now live in Bromley, Greater London, where Raducanu began playing tennis at the age of five.
Her father pushed her to pursue new interests at a young age, and she participated in ballet, swimming, horseback riding, golf, skiing, and even motocross, in addition to tennis.
During the Covid lockdowns, Ian would whack tennis balls with his daughter in the streets, and he remains an essential member of her team, having a role in her coaching situation after the US Open.
