Emma Raducanu hopes to follow US Open glory at Wimbledon… by eating frozen yoghurt after each win like in New York | The Sun
EMMA RADUCANU hopes to rekindle her New York fairytale at Wimbledon with pots of frozen yoghurt.
Britain’s Golden Girl faces France’s Caroline Garcia today in the second round of the Championships.
During her epic US Open success last September, the Kent ace routinely ate frozen yoghurt on Times Square as a treat at the end of matches in New York.
Raducanu, 19, said: “I haven’t been able to go out because we’ve been finishing late.
“But I’ve already eyed up and scouted out the area and there is a frozen yoghurt spot. So I’m sure I will be hitting that.
“It’s my favourite treat because I can convince myself it’s healthy but it depends what toppings you put on it!
