British teenager Emma Raducanu said on Wednesday she is not rethinking her career plans after world number one Ash Barty’s surprise retirement and that she fully hopes to play into her 30s.

Raducanu, who enjoyed a spectacular breakout season on the WTA Tour last year and won the U.S. Open, said she took inspiration from Barty and that the 25-year-old Australian’s retirement shows how personal everyone’s career objectives are.

“For me, I want to be in the game as long as possible,” Raducanu told reporters at the Miami Open.

“I’m only 19. I’ve just come on tour, which is pretty young.”
