Emma Raducanu

That’s good to hear.  It would have overwhelmed most 18 year olds.

I agree.  In fact she did incredibly well just holding it together for three matches.

I hope so too.   According to her father the breathing difficulty was due to the stress of continually having to play at such a high level, something I can well believe.
Yeah i can believe that. I am sure she is fit . But not used to playing rallies and points at that intensity, over and over
She was hyped from the first point, I remember Andy saying looking back on his Wimbledon match with Nally, that he wasted to much energy fist pumping on every good point , that he just ran out of steam, a lesson he learnt.
hopefully Emma will learn this too.

I remember that about Andy too, but at least Emma wasn't wasting energy fist-pumping!   What she needs is to play more matches at Tour level, if she can get wild cards either into the main draw or the qualifying - something which I would think will happen now, the secret being to pace herself and not overdo it.

Did you watch the match, she was fist clenching and ‘comeon’ from the first game
I think we are in agreement she needs more experience , she obviously is capable of playing at a high level.

I only started watching at the very end of the first set but I don't think she was doing it then.

Tennis is a mental game and also a physical one ,  and also has a skill set, it’s that merging of  all these,  that make players, that go onto achieve, 
She has said quite honesty, that the at this point in her life, that match was a little to much, she may not have said it came out physically, but that is how I see it
She will learn and grow, if she does not want tennis to be her  calling, she may be just another footnote in history, who knows

Thanks but I do know what it takes to get to the top in tennis.  As for the rest we've often seen promising young players simply disappear from sight, but both Nigel Sears and Matt James are on record as saying that Emma is 'someone special', so hopefully she won't fall into the former category, particularly as from what I've read she sounds like a high achiever.

My apologies for the snarkiness.  No I didn't watch the build up because I was fed up with all the hype and I couldn't watch the beginning of the match anyway as I had something else to do, but if she was wasting energy fist pumping so often, then, yes, I hope she'll have learnt that it isn't a good idea.

Emma lost 6/3, 6/2 at the Silicon Valley Classic which was the first tournament she's played since Wimbledon.
She's done very well but she has a long way to go.

Doing well in Chicago - beat the no.1 seed for her first ever ATP hard court win, followed it up in round 2 with another victory. Now in the quarters of this Challenger tournament...

She's doing really well in Chicago, she plays Jule Niemier in the quarter final.
After this tournament she'll be in the top 170.

Thanks Tonedial.  So that's Emma through to the semis when Jule retired after losing the first set 4-7 in the tiebreak.

Plays America's 21 year old Claire Liu, a former Junior No.1, currently ranked No.129 with 4 ITF singles titles to her name.

A good win for Emma.  Hope she can go on to lift the title.
