Emma Raducanu gifted her historic US Open trophy to the LTA

Emma Raducanu has revealed she generously “gifted” her historic US Open trophy to the Lawn Tennis Association, as “a special token of appreciation” for the support she receives from the sport’s national governing body.

Photos of the 18-year-old cradling her prize in New York were splashed across newspapers across the globe, but Raducanu had no plans of taking the replica trophy home to sit on the mantelpiece back in Bromley. Instead, she is having it shipped back to the National Tennis Centre in Roehampton so that the LTA can have it proudly displayed at its base.

Raducanu revealed the classy gesture after her 6-3, 6-4 win over Ana Bogdan in Cluj-Napoca, where she was back to her clinical best to progress to her first-ever WTA quarter-final at the Transylvania Open.

“It’s not at home, if you want to see it, it’s at the NTC,” Raducanu said of her trophy in Thursday’s post-match interview. “The LTA have done so much for me, I wanted them to have it as a sign and a big thank you for everything they’ve done, helping me through the young ages. They took control in my development. So, it’s a little gift. I think they’ve done a lot for me so it was just a token of appreciation.

RAFA NADAL’S SISTER TELLS HOW MERY PERELLÓ IS DOING – News from the hospital

The tennis player Rafa Nadal  will become a father in October 2022 or, at the latest, in November, according to sources from his environment in conversation with Diario de Mallorca. This medium reported at the time that Mery Perelló , the athlete’s wife, had had to be admitted to the hospital due to complications in her pregnancy, which required surgical intervention. To this day, Mery remains in absolute rest and we know how she is. 

The magazine Hello! has now revealed that the baby the couple is expecting will be a boy, although the Nadal family prefers not to comment at all on this issue. However, the sister of the manacorí, Maribel Nadal, who attended an awards ceremony presided over by Queen Letizia on behalf of the tennis player’s foundation, was approached in the middle of the street by reporters who wanted to know more details about the special moment that Nadal and Mery, also known as Xisca, live among their loved ones. How’s he doing?

Maribel did not want to enter the game, but confirmed that both are “very well” in the final stretch of pregnancy. With a broad smile, the board limited itself to confirming that everything is going according to plan and that the whole family is very excited about the imminent arrival of the new member of the clan.

Nadal himself acknowledged, after being eliminated in the round of 16 of the US Open, that he had gone through a period of great nervousness, being so far from his wife during her stay in the medical center (and a possible childbirth ).premature), and that he needed to fully focus on such an important stage of his personal and family life. That did not prevent, however, the Spaniard from going to London to play the last match in the Swiss’s career with Roger Federer, a very emotional meeting in which the two friends burst into tears during the tribute that took place in the O2 pavilion Arena of the British capital.

“I do the usual routines that I have every day. I am eager for tennis and competition. I’m hungry for trophies. I have maintained the top level of tennis by playing in the biggest tournaments.”

LeBron James sends a strong message to the entire NBA

Last season the Lakers signed a resounding failure, after failing to qualify for the Playoffs , so this season they seek to have a rematch and be able to lift their 18th title in history. Likewise, LeBron James promised the fans of the Los Angeles franchise that he will give a show, because he assures that the team is up for great things.

Through a video, the Lakers shared a message from LeBron James to all the Los Angeles fans and ended with a warning to all NBA teams .

“I just want to say hello to all the Lakers faithful. Listen, without the Laker Show, we’re nothing. And it is my responsibility and our responsibility here, to put on a show for all of you. The sand is going to be lightning there. It’s going to be showtime everywhere. It’s going to be high-flying, alley-oops, 3-pointers, blocks, charges. A lot of emotion. You all give me that thrill, and I promise you I’ll give you my thrill. (Number) Six is ​​back. The King is back, have my throne ready. Crown running. You know how we do it,” LeBron James said.

What the Lakers need according to LeBron

With the goal of having a good 2022-23 NBA season , the Los Angeles Lakers were forced to take stock to improve various aspects, both from the point of view of the squad and from the game.

And now it was LeBron James who admitted what they need to polish. “Defense… Obviously, you have to be able to get the ball in the rim, but teams that can defend and get stops where they’re needed are just more successful in our league. The defensive end of the court is what we’re going to work on every day,” he explained in dialogue with Dan Woike and Michael Corvo .

 

It is expected that this time, the defense of the Los Angeles franchise will work better, after a season in which Anthony Davis was injured and Russell Westbrook in a low level.

LeBron James committed to the Lakers

LeBron first joined the Lakers in 2018 and many were unsure how long he would remain within the franchise, a few months ago he recently signed a contract extension that could keep him in purple and gold until 2025.

Last season LeBron was absolutely exceptional, performing at a level that no one his age has been able to achieve. But injuries cost him much of the season, as did many on the roster, and the Lakers floundered last season.
