Fan-favorite Emma Raducanu had high hopes for Wimbledon in front of the British supporters, but the youngster’s road ended prematurely on Wednesday in a shocking straight-sets defeat to Frenchman Caroline Garcia, 6-3, 6-3. The No. 10 ranked player coming into the tournament, Raducanu had some moments of brilliance but struggled to find consistency against Garcia, who has far more experience on this stage.

After the loss at Wimbledon, Raducanu remained positive and upbeat. Via The Mirror Online:

“It will make me a better player because they (other top players) are just highlighting all my weaknesses. Then when you do it on a big court like that, it’s definitely magnified. It’s just great for me to get all these lessons at such a young age so that when I’m in my mid 20s, I’ll have those issues or little glitches in my game sorted. I’ll just get better.”

After all, Raducanu is just 19 years old. Sure, she heroically won the US Open last summer, but the Brit is still extremely young and her best years are still ahead. Raducanu’s biggest problem in this match though was her serve, winning less than half of her points.

Despite the defeat, Raducanu is feeling extremely confident heading back to Flushing Meadows after Wimbledon:

“Going back to New York (for her US Open defence), it’s going to be cool because I have got a lot of experiences playing on big courts, playing with people in the stadium, playing with the spotlight on you.

“I don’t mind that. I mean, for me, everything is learning. I’m embracing every single moment that is thrown at me.”

Also, this is Emma Raducanu’s first full season on the WTA Tour. Better days are surely ahead. She’s just taking every single setback as a learning curve.
