Fans joke Tottenham can claim US Open as Raducanu is pictured in Spurs shirt

Football fans have joked that Tottenham supporters can claim the US Open as a trophy after Emma Raducanu was spotted in a Spurs shirt.

Raducanu, who is gearing up to face Storm Saunders at the Stuttgart Open, was seen sporting a Spurs jersey. The Brit hit some balls with Spurs' home shirt with 'Raducanu 10' printed on the back.

One Spurs fan commented on Twitter: "Can we claim the US Open as a trophy?" However, other football fans joked she may struggle to win any more major honours while wearing the Tottenham jersey, with Spurs going trophyless since 2008.

One fan replied: "Let's hope she doesn't follow the @SpursOfficial moto of empty trophy cabinets. We're rooting for her but dammit her tennis has been below par."

"I know you've been struggling to win since the US Open but I don't think repping Spurs will win you any more trophies," another joked. But a Spurs fan hit back: "US Open champion you’ll never sing that."

A fourth added: "How very disappointing, her recent form can be described as being very Spursy. She has more trophies than them!"

However, Raducanu bounced back as she claimed the US Open title a couple of months later on her way to being named BBC's Sports Personality of the Year.
