Emma Raducanu

When I was 18 I was in Henry’s in Bromley drinking beer, trying to chat to girls and get Scott Minto’s autograph.

Emma Raducano’s achievement tonight of becoming the U.S. Open champion is quite mindboggling. She came from out of literally nowhere. Just 18 and with a youth tennis path so different to child prodigy’s we have seen in the past.

The first ever Grand Slam champion to come through the qualifiers where she had to play three games in three days, then seven further matches, all without dropping a set. A fantastical achievement.

I hope both her and Leylah Fernandez become two players that we see at the top for many years to come.

The girl from Bromley, British hero, Grand Slam champion, superstar.

  1. Bromley or Orpington What a wonderful achievement indeed and speaks so very well for an 18-year-old.
    Congratulations indeed and a breath of fresh air and no sets dropped but I would also like to congratulate her marvellous opponent also.

    So pleased you did not mention our “spectacular” and “distinguished” FC and you know what was expecting it but heartwarming to wake up to this and yes feeling very joyful indeed.
