Backwoodsman BS: Our Emma (Raducanu) - Tennis (108* d) RE: BS: Our Emma (Raducanu) - Tennis 14 Sep 21

‘Those were the exact words cut and pasted’

Eight words, perhaps badly-chosen, but genuinely intended as a light-hearted clarification of the point I was making about her multi-national origins. Cherry-picked to be used as a stick to beat me with. Hardly a fair and comprehensive review, is it?

”There is nothing wrong with celebrating in the achievements of someone from your country or community or town etc etc.

Where did I say there was? Any comment on this, from my last post?…

“I’m enjoying her success immensely because she’s an astonishing phenomenon and an inspirational figure for any young person of any nationality who has an ambition to succeed in whatever field they have chosen.”

Anything to say about my post of 12 Sep 21 - 12:56 AM, wherein I praised her performance to the skies and wished her the greatest success for her future?

”The facts that she has links elsewhere is completely irrelevant.”

Not necessarily irrelevant to those from the other countries to which she has links. They are as entitled to feel she’s ‘theirs’ as anyone in the UK is to feel she’s ‘ours’.
