New Zealand’s Lulu Sun Stuns Emma Raducanu to Reach Wimbledon Quarter-finals



New Zealand's Lulu Sun Stuns Emma Raducanu To Reach Wimbledon Quarter Finals

British tennis star Emma Raducanu has been knocked out of Wimbledon after a hard-fought match against the qualifier Lulu Sun, ending in a 6-2, 5-7, 6-2 defeat for Raducanu on Centre Court.

The British number three aimed to make her first quarter-final appearance in the women’s singles at SW19 but was unable to surpass New Zealand-born Sun’s impressive performance.

Raducanu’s slip on the grass early in the deciding set led to a medical time-out, disrupting her rhythm and allowing Sun to seize the opportunity to secure the victory.

Lulu Sun, with a world ranking of 123, expressed her delight after her debut on Centre Court, highlighting the intensity of the match against Raducanu.

With Raducanu’s exit, Sun now advances to face Croatian Donna Vekic in the quarter-finals, continuing her remarkable journey at the All England Club.

Emma Raducanu, a qualifier at the 2021 US Open where she claimed the singles title, had made a comeback to competitive play after facing wrist and ankle surgery setbacks last year.

The British tennis sensation’s journey at Wimbledon reflected her resilience and determination, reaching the fourth round after recent successes at the Nottingham Open and Eastbourne.

Raducanu’s battle against the qualifier Sun showcased the unpredictable nature of tennis, where underdogs like Sun can rise to the occasion and deliver stunning performances.

Despite the loss, Raducanu’s presence at Wimbledon marked a significant milestone in her return to the top-tier competition, emphasizing her potential for future success on the professional circuit.
