Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed he was “overwhelmed” and “inspired” by Emma Raducanu’s US Open victory on Saturday.

Emma showed great respect for her.

Klopp said he was one of the nine million people in the UK to tune into the match, as 18-year-old Raducanu made history by becoming the first qualifier to win a grand slam as she defeated 19-year-old Leylah Fernandez in New York.

Klopp said that Raducanu’s victory and the subsequent maturity displayed by the two teenagers as they gave their post-match speeches on Arthur Ashe had taught him a lesson in sportsmanship, and the 54-year-old said he will be watching more women’s tennis in the future as a result.

“I watched the final and it was absolutely impressive,” Klopp said.

I was absolutely overwhelmed with how they presented themselves.

“It’s long ago since I had watched a full tennis game, it’s [even longer] since I had watched a full women’s tennis game, and I was really impressed by the power, speed, and the whole game.
