Emma Raducanu: Serena Williams & Andy Murray joined by Brit as All England Club member

Emma Raducanu has received an invite to become a member of the All England Club after making a significant impact in tennis over recent months.

The Brit will join the likes of Serena Williams, Andy Murray, and Roger Federer on the star-studded members list.

The exclusive club, which hosts Wimbledon every year, is extremely limited, with just 500 players on its books.

Typically, players who win the English Grand Slam receive an invite to join the All England Club, but Raducanu is an exception in this case.

The 18-year-old has become a household name since making history at the US Open in September. After succeeding in three qualifying matches, Raducanu entered the main draw of the tournament, where she would go on to win her first major without so much as dropping a single set.

Her triumph at Flushing Meadows made her the first ever qualifier to win a Grand Slam title and saw her rise through the world rankings to become the new British number one.

Raducanu's first Grand Slam appearance came back in June, following her WTA Tour debut at the Nottingham Open. She was drawn into the Wimbledon roster as a wildcard and went on to reach the third round of the tournament before being forced to withdraw due to breathing difficulties.

The Brit has since appeared at the Indian Wells Masters and the Transylvania Open, a tournament on the home soil of her Romanian father Ian. However, her form hasn't been as strong since she returned from New York — she has won just two of the four matches she has played since clinching the US Open title.

But despite a break in her winning streak, she has revealed she will be taking some much-needed downtime before undergoing intense training ahead of her first pre-season.

Raducanu will next take to the court on November 7th when she competes in the Upper Austria Ladies Linz.
