Kate Middleton has previously shown her support for Emma Raducanu.
Last week Friday, the royal mom-of-three shared a message encouraging and praising the British tennis star for becoming the first female qualifier to reach a Grand Slam singles final since 1977.
“What an incredible achievement at this year’s #USOpen @EmmaRaducanu! We will all be rooting for you tomorrow. Wishing you the best of luck!” Kate, an avid tennis fan, tweeted.

The Duchess of Cambridge, who is a huge fan of the sport, took over from the Queen as the patron of the All England Lawn Tennis Club in 2016.
