Teenage tennis sensation Emma Raducanu says she can't wait to play in the UAE next week.

The 19-year-old will be competing in the Mubadala World Tennis Championship at the International Tennis Centre in Abu Dhabi from December 16.

Raducanu stunned the sporting world with her performances at Wimbledon before going on to make history at the US Open in New York when she became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam title, at the age of 18.

To cap an amazing year, this week Raducanu was named the 2021 WTA Newcomer of the Year in a vote of the world's tennis media.

Speaking exclusively to Dubai Eye 103.8's Off Script, Emma says her win at Flushing Meadows was special.
