2021 US Open champion Emma Raducanu recently took to social media to share some photos from her vacation in Greece with Carlo Agostinelli.

Raducanu did not compete at Wimbledon this year as a wrist injury forced her to withdraw from the grasscourt season. She underwent triple surgery - on her ankle and both wrists - in May, and has been recovering ever since.

The Brit has not yet confirmed her participation in the US Open, which starts on August 28.

Raducanu posted several pictures from her recent trip to Greece on Monday, July 17. The photographs showed her exploring the islands, posing on a rock in a blue bikini top and white shorts, and sipping a drink in a stylish kitchen, among other things. She also included a photo of Agostinelli wearing an Evian bucket hat.

“Quick breather in hellas - 🔥 in the belly to go now,” Raducanu wrote on Instagram.

Agostinelli too shared a few pictures from their trip to Greece.

Carlo Agostinelli is the son of Mathilde Favier – the head of public relations at Dior, and London-based American private equity dollar billionaire Robert Agostinelli. A Stanford graduate, Carlo has also been a collegiate soccer player.

In May, Emma Raducanu and Carlo Agostinelli posted images of themselves enjoying each other’s company in Mexico City. Raducanu, Dior's global fashion and beauty ambassador, was attending Dior's 2024 Cruise show at the time.

"México for the plot 🇲🇽🤍 con @dior ♥️", Raducanu captioned her post.

Katie Boulter recently replaced Emma Raducanu as the new British No. 1 in women's tennis, with the latter dropping down the rankings due to her absence from the sport. On Monday, June 12, Boulter officially claimed the title of World No. 126.

Katie Swan had a chance to secure the top spot, but her hopes were dashed when she lost to Yanina Wickmayer in a thrilling match in the 2023 Surbiton final which ended with a score of 6-2, 4-6, 6-7. Instead, the 26-year-old Boulter, who was defeated by Wickmayer in the tournament's semifinals, became the highest-ranked female tennis player from Britain.

In addition to her physical setbacks and dropping out of the top 100, Emma Raducanu also recently ended her six-month collaboration with coach Sebastian Sachs. The 20-year-old is currently is in search of a new coach, her sixth in a span of two years.
