Australian Open: Why Emma Raducanu needs time and patience

BBC Sport says Emma Raducanu’s ascent to superstardom has been so swift, sharp and stunning that the story would be dismissed as fantasy if it wasn’t still fresh in the memory.

Winning the US Open as an 18-year-old qualifier without dropping a set – in only her fourth senior tournament – has brought fame and scrutiny the Briton would have never imagined six months ago.

The lens of the world will focus on Raducanu when she starts her Australian Open campaign on Tuesday as the sport’s latest female major champion.

She plays 2017 US Open champion Sloane Stephens from about 10:30 GMT.
