The stalker of Britain’s No 1 women’s singles player Emma Raducanu been caught and convicted.
A 35-year-old man, Amrit Magar was found guilty by Bromley Magistrates’ Court on Friday after allegedly stalking the US Open champion since December.
The former delivery driver had been captured on the door camera of Raducanu’s London-home numerous. He left a love note, flowers and also, on one occasion, a hand-drawn map charting out the 23-mile journey by foot from his home to Raducanu’s residence.
The World No 18 has subsequently been rattled.
“Since all this has happened, I have felt creeped out,” she said in a statement to the court, as reported by the Daily Mail.
“I feel very apprehensive if I go out, especially if I’m on my own.
“Because of this I feel like my freedom has been taken away from me. I am constantly looking over my shoulder. I feel on edge and worried this could happen again. I don’t feel safe in my own home which is where I should feel safest.”
Out of form
Since the high of becoming the only qualifier to go on to win a Grand Slam in the Open Era, Raducanu has had a torrid time on court.
The 19-year-old crashed in the second round of the Australian Open, losing in three sets to Danka Kovinic.
Since the triumph in New York, she has played eight matches, winning only three.
