Following her historic win at the US Open, Emma Raducanu has clearly proven an inspiration for budding tennis players up and down the UK, with searches for tennis lessons increasing four-fold following her victory this weekend.
Visits to the tennis page of the David Lloyd Clubs website have doubled since 10th September as families are inspired to see if they have the next court superstar in their midst.
This trend is reflected in Google trends across the nation, with sharp surges in searches for tennis courts, coaching and clubs nearby.
