    Absolutely! She's got everything, if she holds it all together (and has the right support) she's someone we'll be cheering on for years to come and she'll benefit personally and financially. (Jealous moi? :rolleyes:)

    We were out to dinner this evening and as we had finished eating I was keeping half an eye on the tennis on my phone. There was a group of people we know sitting at the table behind us and as Emma Raducanu won I spun round to tell them. Straight off I heard 'oh, the Romanian-Canadian-Chinese 'British' girl has won'. I just despair of people sometimes. I am thrilled for her. What an absolutely brilliant achievement regardless of where she hails from. It's great for us that she is British - except for those for whom she doesn't count.

    Not to downplay the amazing Raducanu or steal any air from her achievements but a sjout out to the first Brit in Open era tennis to win 2 Doubles titles at a Major. Joe Salisbury now has 4 Slam titles which is fair going:

    (Yeah apologies for the quote thing)

    Well you guys carry on discrediting her then.

    I wish there less miserabilists and more families like hers around.[/QUOTE]
    I'm not discrediting anyone - her achievement is incredible. I just don't see the need to invent a "rags to riches" story like some of the press do.

    Incredible match, the standard was so high. Can't even imagine what it must feel like winning like that at only 18 what an achievement.

    Still don’t understand why Djokovic played mixed doubles at Olympics when he was on the verge of becoming only the 3rd man to complete a Calendar Grand Slam?!

    Some people pride themselves on being able to suck the joy out of a bouncy castle. Makes up for their own sad lives.

    American player (who's first name, strangely, is Tennys) gets hit in the plums when a ball boy lobs him a tennis ball, so he angrily whacks the (tennis) ball away with his racquet, it bounces off a fence and smacks a line judge up the arse. Tennys gets disqualified.

    No footage available but I'm laughing just picturing it in my mind.

    Really excited for tonight and watching Norrie in the finals. My son never got into football but he absolutely loves tennis.

    We are going to stay up and watch him. Got my snacks ready. Elderflower water, pistachio nuts and baklava made by my Lebanese friend. It is my perfect snack.
