She has chosen to represent Britain and we should be thankful.  She's a brilliant talent.

Emma Raducanu and her parents have lived in the UK since she was 2 years old. That makes her British enough by my standards..

She has done exceptionally well and irrespective of her background should be looked on as a British success. We have painfully few successes in tennis and now we have a bright new talent all people ca

We have painfully few successes in tennis and now we have a bright new talent all people can do is pull her apart. Talk about build people up just for the pleasure of pulling them down again.

Who remembers Ilie Nastase?

 

Pickleface, of the Manning School 'sports department' :P certainly had a thing about him in the early 70s. 

 

He'll never know how lucky he was not to have met her!

Nobody's knocking her Woody, or trying to pull her to pieces. I think we're all pleased that she's doing so well and we're backing her all the way. We have to be careful this doesn't become a slanging match, (mountains and molehills etc). More power to the lass and I wish her all the luck in the world.

She’s nearly as British as former British number one male player, Greg Rusedski.

 

Along with the great British distance runners Zola Bud...  Mohamed Muktar Jama Farah... footballer Owen Hargreaves... The list goes on... how about Bradley Wiggins? he's as British as they come but is actually Belgian!

If they want to play for us good on 'em I say.

I liked him when he was at his peak. He was a good, charismatic player.

 

In recent years he's turned into a foul-mouthed moron, and been banned from several places/organisations/tournaments for being a gobby idiot.

He well deserves the nickname 'nasty' and to be honest that's all I've ever thought of him..

One bloke I loved to watch, especially in his later years, when he used to have fun....

That is Henri Le Cant, (excuse spelling).

What a star Emma Raducanu is ……. and what a fantastic win.  Real edge of the seat stuff and only spoiled by the mardy Fernandez when Emma needed treatment to her bleeding shin.   
We thought we were having to subscribe to Prime Video to watch it but then found it on Ch4 and it was worth having a Saturday night in front of the box.

This was Emma Raducanu playing in Nottingham in June. What a difference 3 months makes.

 

Can I request the 1st post in this tread removed? Anybody agree?
