Don't give a flying fart about PC, and I'm not even a tennis fan. But I wish to say that Emma is bright, Emma is beautiful, Emma is the most smiley sporty person I've seen for years, Emma has true guts and Emma is going to do our country a ton of good in these dark times. I mean, wow. Go, Emma, and never let capitalism grind you down!

‘Our’ Emma?? Oh, you mean the girl born in Canada of Romanian and Chinese parents? Not even as ‘British’ as Greg Rusedski who, although born in Montreal QC, did at least have one British parent.

Not trying to detract from her rising star - a beautiful, graceful, talented young athlete she most certainly is, an absolute joy to watch on and off the courts, and an inspiration to other aspiring young sportsmen and women, but hardly ‘home-grown’! Under the circumstances, ‘our’ really does stretch it a bit, don’cha fink?

To me, BWM, that makes her the perfect British citizen! Bit of everything :-) If only other people would realise that the keep Britain Britsh thing fell by the wayside when the first people crossed the land bridge from Europe. We have been accepting other people ever since and since the Raducanu family were welcomed into this country they are as British as you and I.

Maybe they should be sent home? Damned foreigners coming here, driving lorries, picking fruit, winning sporting trophies...

Ha! Come on Dave, you know me better than that - I’m a true believer in Free Movement and I love the diversification of our U.K. population that we’ve seen in our recent history and despite the racism of Brexit and its supporters. I’m taking huge pleasure in Emma Raducanu’s success, and I’ll be screaming at the TV in support of her during the match tonight - exactly as I have done throughout this competition and during this year’s Wimbledon.

But I don’t see her as uniquely ‘ours’ - three other nations are entitled to make a claim, however slight, on her being ‘theirs’ too, her country of birth first and foremost, but to a lesser degree the countries of her parents’ births.

And, TBH, I’d take the same pleasure in watching her play even if she declared any other country than the UK as her nationality. She’s a major-talent-in-the-making, an absolute delight to watch and follow her success, and calling her ‘ours’ makes no difference whatsoever to that IMHO.

A Flag-Shagger I am not.

I don't recall anyone saying she is uniquely ours or complaining about anyone else associating with her, John. Bit of a straw man you are putting up there.

Putting it simply, she is as British as any of us and as we are all members of this wonderful inclusive club I feel quite entitled to call her ours:-)

I dread the moment when she first stumbles though and wonder what the rabid Daily Mailers will turn her into then :-(

Hmmm…nowhere have I said she’s 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 didn’t win - as a former not-especially-good-but-very-keen sportsman in several disciplines I’m well-versed in the art of losing well - but because of the manner of her exit. I can’t 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 it’s amazing to see how she appears to have recovered, and come out of it all the stronger for the experience.

I’ll 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!

Is young Emma a UK citizen yet? If so, she's yours and you're stuck with her however she performs. Since she was born in Toronto, she was already a subject of Her Maj when she arrived, although the Canadian passport doesn't say so any more.

I have been following the adventures of "our" Leylah Fernandez in the same tournament. Born in Montreal of Ecuadoran refugee parents and currently a resident of Boynton Beach, Florida, she is a typical successful Canadian. Her Dad is all over the papers being over the moon.

Incidentally, these two young athletes are working out yet another phase of the age-old Montreal v Toronto rivalry that formed eastern Canada as we know it.

I find it interesting that the news headlines are just as keen on talking about her as talking about the 20th anniversary of the twin towers attack.
The second thought is that niether of the contestants in the tennis match had been born when that happened. So, this is news as opposed to the "olds" that we get so much of.

Good luck to both of them (but with a bias to "Our Emma").

I dunno if she is a UK citizen, Charmion, but as she has been here since she was 2, has been educated here and trained here in her chosen field, I don't think it matters much :-) As the son of a Polish immigrant who was proud to be accepted as a British citizen I like to think that the British people, for all their faults, do welcome others with open arms.

What tickled me not long ago though was our press reaction to another tennis start - Andy Murray. When he was winning he was British but whenever he lost he regained his native Scottish nationality :-D

No problem Dave, it’s very interesting to hear different sides in a discussion, especially when the other person has your kind of personal experience.

I almost completely agree with you, my only difference seems to be that I strongly believe that, when representing a country, a sportsman/woman should be a native of that country, born there.

Perhaps I’m out of step with others here - it doesn’t bother me one jot, I’ve spent the past 24 years being the guy who’s out of step, I’m very well accustomed to it! ;-) :-)

I don't mind anyone being out of step as long as it doesn't affect the whole platoon:-) In this day and age I think it unreasonable to expect an accident of birth to dictate who people represent in their chosen field. Globalisation, migration and even asylum moves people in ways that have never occurred before. In the worst case, would you expect an Afghan child, taken to safety by their parents 20 years ago, to return to that country to represent them at anything? Of course not.

People should be able to, within reason, chose their own nationality and where they live rather than be forced to an identity that was none of their own doing.

But, hey,that's just this child of the universe talking :-D

The match has now started, after much preamble. So, Emma’s opponent is Canadian: and to keep BWM happy, she was born in Montreal. But she has a Hispanic-sounding name but looks Asian: her father is from Ecuador and her mother is described as Filipino Canadian. I don’t have a problem with any of that, given that the world is getting smaller and more multi-racial all the time: in the words of the song “It’s a great big melting pot”. Now excuse me while I watch the match, and COME ON EMMA!

I honestly didn't want either of them to lose. They were both beautifully smiley, they love each other, etc., but forget all that, above all they are both bloody good tennis players.

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…

Emma Raducanu's extraordinary run at the US Open finished in glorious fashion in New York as the 18-year-old became Britain's first female singles Grand Slam champion for 44 years.Raducanu was born on 13 November 2002 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to Ian and Renee, who originate from Bucharest, Romania, and Shenyang, Liaoning, China, respectively. The original spelling of her family name in Romanian is Raducanu (pronounced [r?du'kanu]) Another example of a positive that an immigrant has brought to the UK.

I must admit that I am no big sports fan but if every match was like that I'd become a tennis fan tomorrow. My heart was racing, I cheered. I gasped and, most important to this grasshopper mind, it wasn't too long :-) No tantrums and the stress only showed slightly on Laylah when, after pulling back two match points, she had to wait for Emma's injury to be treated. If that injury had been on the professional football field (Sorry Steve) I suspect the injured party would have been carried off!

Some minor things away from the match. I thought the rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner" was particularly horrendous. Why do they have to do that strange warbling? I know I am shallow for this but I took an instant dislike to Laylah's sulky looking little sister and wish they hadn't kept panning the camera to her. I thought it was a bit crass to mention the prize money and have the bank present it to her. And, finally, when did "Sweet Caroline" become the anthem for all English sports?

There wasn't a lot of defensive tennis going on there, both girls seem to go for winners at any opportunity, just the kind of play I like to see.

I've never been a fan myself. I think it became boring when rackets became super-powerful. I loved watching Rod Laver when I was a lad. And I can't bear those bloody yahoos in the crowd at Wimbledon who want to be the last to shut up before the next serve. Another aspect I dislike is the seeding system, a ham-fisted way of "saving the best 'til last." What's great about Emma and Leylah's triumph is that they both smashed their way, gloriously unseeded, through all that nonsense.

I looked up the official Grand Slam rule on a bleeding injury:

"If a player is bleeding, the Chair Umpire must stop play as soon as possible, and the Sports Physiotherapist must be called to the court by the Chair Umpire for evaluation and treatment. The Sports Physiotherapist, in conjunction with the Tournament Doctor if appropriate, will evaluate the source of the bleeding, and will request a Medical Time-Out for treatment if necessary.
If requested by the Sports Physiotherapist and/or Tournament Doctor, the Referee in consultation with the Grand Slam Supervisor or Chair Umpire may allow up to a total of five (5) minutes to assure control of the bleeding.
If blood has spilled onto the court or its immediate vicinity, play must not resume until the blood spill has been cleaned appropriately."

Leylah needed to have been a bit calmer and more philosophical about it. After all, the interruption disrupted the flow of both players equally, there was clearly no jiggerypokery going on and the correct procedure was being followed.

In my view the reaction to Emma Raducann's success does have a bearing on discussion on UK politics, and highlights the hierocracy of a government which on one hand is committed to anti-immigration policy and on the other jumps on the bandwagon on praising her success - and the likes of fagarse who has also jumped on the bandwagon while having a history of and Romanian rhetoric and shit-stirring.
