Emma Raducanu is playing her first match on home soil since her historic US Open triumph. The Bromley teenager became the first-ever qualifier to win a Grand Slam in Flushing Meadows earlier this year. She takes on Elena-Gabriela Ruse in an exhibition match at London’s Royal Albert Hall during the final day of the Champions Tennis event.
Raducanu is facing world No 85 and recent European Open champion Ruse in her first match on home soil since winning the US Open on Sunday (November 28).
Ranked down at a then-career-high of world No 150, the 19-year-old made history as the first-ever qualifier to win a Major title, coming through ten matches without dropping a set en route to picking up the US Open trophy.
She now returns for her first match in Britain at an exhibition in the Royal Albert Hall, available to watch on the BBC Sport website, BBC iPlayer and the Red Button.
The pair open the afternoon session on the final day of the Champions Tennis tournament, being held in London for the final time.
