Backwoodsman BS: Our Emma (Raducanu) - Tennis (108* d) RE: BS: Our Emma 11 Sep 21


HmmmÖnowhere have I said sheís not entitled to call herself British. Read the thread title Dave, and think carefully about your own Straw Man! ;-)

I watched her through the rounds at Wimbledon, and I was heartbroken for her when she had to retire in the semis. Heartbroken, not because she didnít win - as a former not-especially-good-but-very-keen sportsman in several disciplines Iím well-versed in the art of losing well - but because of the manner of her exit. I canít claim to know what was going on but, to this non-expert in psychology/physiology, it looked very much like a panic attack. Whatever, it was very sad, and itís amazing to see how she appears to have recovered, and come out of it all the stronger for the experience.

Iíll be raring to go at 9pm tonight, fired-up, and willing Emma on. And who knows, I might even allow myself the luxury of a little bit of national pride!
