So where has Britain’s sporting darling gone… well, anyone for Raducanu and Maldives?
Emma I think it would be right to say can do with some time out of the spotlight.
And that is what last year’s US Open tennis winner is getting with her engagement in the Indian Ocean atolls.
Emm-meet and greet
Emma will share her skills and pro tips with guests at Amilla Maldives Resort and Residences on Baa Atoll from 25 October -2 November.
Emma will give a 60-minute tennis clinic at the resort’s jungle-clad, US Open-standard tennis courts.
She will also attend a meet-and-greet and just like any other 19-year-old is excited about going out to the teardrop isles.
She said: ‘I’m delighted to discover the Maldives for the first time. I will have an amazing time there.’
Kings and queens of court
Baa Atoll has become something of a magnet for the cream of tennis.
With former World No. 1s Angelique Kerber and Pat Rafter and Olympic gold medallist Sasha Zverev and Davis Cup winner Viktor Troicki all gracing its courts.
And those of us who have been out to the Maldives have always been mighty glad to have an alternative to water sports.
Because as enjoyable as they are, if like me you weren’t born with a snorkel in your mouth scuba diving doesn’t come naturally.
And you’ll be glad for a game of football or cricket with the staff as I did in Kuramathi.
And cool down later in your own infinity pool.
All of which should appeal to the jet set tennis player.
And that’s the beauty of it for us and the scrutinised tennis star, here’s an escape from the humdrum of home.
Anyone for Raducanu and Maldives… I know I am.
