Emma Raducanu delights locals as she speaks Romanian in post-match interview


The 18-year-old headed to the tournament coach-less after she shocked the tennis world by parting with her former trainer Andrew Richardson, following her record-breaking US Open win.

She was, however, joined by her father for the trip as he heads back to his native land, and the teen sensation also revealed ahead of the event that she would be meeting up with her Grandmother whilst in Eastern Europe.
