Since Emma Raducanu won the 2021 US Open title, she has become very famous in Britain. Sponsors are competing with each other to sign up Raducanu.
But there is another trend sweeping the UK. People are naming their newborn daughters Emma after the popular tennis player.
If the trend catches on, Emma will become a popular name for girls in Britain. Hopefully, it also encourages them to play tennis. Britain failed to capitalize on Andy Murray’s accomplishments to promote the sport. Hopefully, lessons were learned from that experience.
