    Emma Raducanu

    The BBC News tonight was trailed with a very brief clip of Emma Raducanu playing table tennis and even mentioned our lowly sport however it cut any mention/footage in the main article.

    Anyone know of Raducanu's table tennis pedigree?

    Yes, I believe she has a Romanian father and Chinese mother. Obviously a very talented tennis player but was wondering about her table tennis after that brief glimpse on the BBC.

    The Times article today mentions Table Tennis as well, but I can't find any videos of her playing
    "US Open finalist Emma Raducanu: Girl who got luckier the harder she worked

    Talented ping pong player who always bounced back
    Emma Raducanu will make tennis history when she walks on the court for the US Open final but in China the 18-year-old is better known as a ping pong player (Didi Tang and David Brown write).

    The young player makes annual visits to her mother’s home city of Shenyang in northeast China where she trains at the professional table tennis club.

    raducanu wins 2 straight. High quality match great shots from both. Maybe the difference was Raducanu’s ability to control the tactics and execute under pressure. She did not drop a set in 10 straight matches!!

    Yes, in her instagram she posted video of her playing table tennis.

    However, I can't put the link here as this forum stated that I could not do that unless I have more than 5 posts.
