If you have heard our weekly Podcast, the Buck Stops Here: Hall of Fame Show, you know that we have discussed (surprisingly) Women’s Tennis a lot, mostly the issues that Naomi Osaka has been going through.  With Osaka’ issues, and an aging Serena Williams, 18-year-old Emma Raducanu came out of nowhere to win the U.S. Open, and a star was born. The British sensation not only won her first Grand Slam, but became a media darling and instant fan-favorite.  The International Tennis Hall of Fame has taken notice, and Radacanu’s U.S. Open game-worn outfit will now be displayed at their institution.
