Tennis Pro Emma Raducanu becomes new Porsche Brand Ambassador

Emma Raducanu wrote tennis history at the US Open. A sensational winning run in New York in the summer of 2021 enabled her to become the first ever qualifier to win a Grand Slam tournament. Now the 19-year-old Briton will be one of the faces of Porsche in women’s tennis and represent the sports car manufacturer worldwide in the future as a Brand Ambassador.

Emma Raducanu stands for a new generation of successful young players on the way to the top of women’s tennis. She is currently world ranked number 13. After her success at the US Open, she was named a Member of the Order of the British Empire by her country. She is the youngest woman ever to receive the honour. In April, she will make her debut at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart’s Porsche Arena.

Emma Raducanu is the first British woman to win a Grand Slam since Virginia Wade in 1977. She was born in Toronto, Canada on 13 November 2002. At the age of two, she then moved with her parents to Great Britain. Her father comes from Romania, her mother from China. She took up tennis at the age of five. Eligible to compete in U-18 ITF tournaments from her 13th birthday, she promptly won the Nike Junior International in Liverpool only eight days later. It therefore makes her the youngest tournament winner in ITF history. As the world No. 338, she was given the chance to compete in Wimbledon thanks to a wildcard and progressed all the way to the last 16. The biggest achievement to date of her young and highly promising career came when she sensationally won the US Open.
