Backwoodsman BS: Our Emma (Raducanu) - Tennis (108* d) RE: BS: Our Emma 12 Sep 21


A great performance by both players, but the best woman won, IMHO. ‘Best’ in that she handled the pressure with amazing maturity and, unlike her opponent, Emma didn’t allow herself to be distracted by the unfortunate injury. Otherwise, both were immensely powerful hitters, playing with intensity and determination and, in truth, neither deserved to lose. In the end, maturity held out.

Surely Emma Raducanu’s rise is one of the most astonishing stories of our time in sport, a real breath of fresh air. But, until now, she’s almost had the proverbial ‘nothing to lose’ - let’s hope that the intense physicality of her game, and the pressure that her astronomic rise will inevitably bring, don’t take their toll and she can continue to grace the courts in the top flight of tennis for many years to come.

Well done Emma! You won with power, skill, grace, and personality - you did the game of tennis proud…
