EMMA RADUCANU took time off from revving up her return from injury by fronting a special Porsche event.

The 2021 US Open champ hopes to regain form as vintage as the classic car she posed alongside at London’s historic Battersea Power Station.

On the court Raducanu can go from 0 to 40 in three points, while some of the Porsches achieve 0-60 in just as few seconds.  But the Brit is in no rush to resume her playing career – as she aims to come back only once she has truly shaken off a dreadful run of fitness problems.

The Canadian-born star, 20, has fallen to 280th in the world after last playing in April.  But she’s now back in the gym, following surgery in her wrists and ankle.  Raducanu’s career has been on a bumpy road since her astonishing triumph triumph at Flushing Meadows two years ago aged just 18.  So it was fitting she was pictured on Thursday next next to Porsche’s own breakthrough – a version of the first car to bear their name.  The Porsche 356/1 Roadster was road certified in 1948, with a 1.1litre engine enabling a top speed of 83mph.

Coincidentally, that’s also the average pace of Raducanu’s second serve, with her first effort typically coming in at around 97mph.  The smiling star looked a real beamer in her latest photos, despite of course being an ambassador for Porsche rather than BMW.  No wonder she’s happy, though – as fans have been praising her talents away from the court.

Some admirers even reckon she could be brushing up for an altrnative career after being mesmerised by her painting skills.  But Raducanu is instead determined to conjure more strokes of genius with a tennis racket when she resumes playing next year.  Other celebrities at the event included actors from hit TV series, like Stranger Things star Amybeth McNulty, Ted Lasso’s Toheeb Jimoh and Shadow & Bone’s Freddy Carter, plus fitness influencer Stef Williams.
