US Open Champion Emma Raducanu surprised everyone from the tennis world by speaking in the Romanian language during the on-court interview at the Transylvania Open 2021.
Moreover, Romanian No.1 and Emma Raducanu’s tennis idol Simona Halep admitted that she was also surprised by the British teenager.
Needless to say that Emma Raducanu’s father is from Bucharest, Romania. And she recently revealed that she built up her Romanian language vocabulary plainly through phone calls with her grandmother, who also lives in Bucharest.
“I was surprised by Emma. I heard she doesn’t speak Romanian, but she did it pretty well. It was pleasant for all Romanians to speak Romanian even if they do not live here. It’s a pleasant feeling,” Simona Halep said in a recent interview. (Quote Has Been Translated Into English Via Google Translator)
