It appears that the country’s new golden girl Emma Raducanu (left) may have split loyalties between two British tennis legends.
The US Open final marks the culmination of the 18-year-old’s weeks of training under new coach Andrew Richardson (top right).
Despite Miss Raducanu’s stunning run to the last 16 of Wimbledon this summer, she replaced her previous coach of three years Nigel Sears (bottom right) – Sir Andy Murray’s father-in-law – with Mr. Richardson shortly afterward.
Mr. Richardson was a contemporary of Tim Henman and even served as best man at his wedding to Lucy Heald in 1999. After her semi-final win, Miss Raducanu praised Mr. Henman for providing support and inspiration.
