Clip Of Emma Raducanu Speaking Fluent Mandarin For Her Chinese Fans Has People In Further Awe

Emma Raducanu made history on Saturday, when she became Britain's first female grand slam winner since Virginia Wade won Wimbledon in 1977.

Not only that, but she - for the first time ever - became the first qualifier in tennis history to make it to the finals of a grand slam, never mind win it. And she did it without dropping a single set.

Fans have been left in awe of the 18-year-old from Bromley - and even more so when a clip was released of Emma, speaking in fluent Mandarin and thanking her Chinese fans for their support.

In the impressive clip, Emma thanked her fans for all of their support over the last few weeks. With Mandarin said to be one of the hardest languages in the world to learn, people are blown away by Emma's talent.

One wrote: "A breath of fresh air. She's an absolute delight. A treasure."

While another said: "Who else is bowled over by this young lady?"

Emma, whose mum is Chinese, says her drive is partly down to her mother's side of the family.

“I think the confidence comes from just inner belief,” she told Vogue.

“My mum comes from a Chinese background, they have very good self-belief. It’s not necessarily about telling everyone how good you are, but it’s about believing it within yourself. I really respect that about the culture.

"My mum has always instilled a lot of the qualities, like discipline and respect for other people, into me, so I think having parents like I do, they always push me, they have high expectations, so I've always tried to live up to that.

"I would say I take a big part of my inspiration from her. She always shows me by example what 'hard work' means.”
