The US Open champ is now back in training
Raducanu spent nearly a MONTH in the Big Apple as she needed to qualify for the Women’s Singles event at the US Open.
The teenager shared several pics during her remarkable run to the title, eventually defeating Leylah Fernandes 6-4, 6-3 in the final.
Raducanu then enjoyed the best New York has to offer and even saw a Nike billboard of herself in the heart of the famous US city.
She also attended the Met Gala, one of the world’s most exclusive social events, alongside sporting icons Naomi Osaka and Lewis Hamilton.
As a huge motorsport fan, Raducanu was particularly excited to rub shoulders with seven-time F1 champ Hamilton.
Speaking to BBC breakfast about her experiences in New York, Raducanu said: “I managed to go to some really cool events and places.
“At the Met Gala I spoke to Lewis Hamilton, which was really cool being such a fan of loads of sports. It was really nice to see him.
“The Met was such an artistic event with great performances and I was very honoured and grateful to have been able to go.”
She wrote: “Thank you so much to this incredible team at the Peninsula New York for the perfect stay.
“A beautiful place and everyone feels like one big family!”
