Emma Raducanu

I don't think tennis is the sport for Emma, she should try something else.

I agree.  She's been offered a place at Cambridge University where she wants to study economics, so I think she should take it and hopefully make a decent future for herself.  That way she could still play tennis as a recreational sport if she wanted to.

Who knows, after 3 years at university she will still be young enough to return to tennis.   Some time away from the pressures of tennis might be what she needs.

Yes, well, she only made £23 million last year - where did it all go wrong?! Smile

^ True, but £19.9m of that came from her many endorsement deals - Nike, Wilson, Evian, Dior, Tiffany & Co, Porsche, Vodaphone, HSBC and  British Airways.

How long are these endorsement going to go on for though if she doesn't start producing results in the next year or two?

I'll just remind everyone that this is a forum currently  devoted to following a 35 year old running around with metal in his hip.

But the calls are for someone who is only days out of their teens to chuck it in??!

Truth is, no one knows if Emma will be able to establish herself at a high level or not. She's injury prone and things aren't looking especially encouraging at the moment. But we could always just wait and see before packing her off to Girton College.

Fair enough but the other thing that doesn't help is the rapidity with which she goes though coaches.  If she could just stick with one for this season we might see an improvement.

The good news is that Emma is fit to play in the AO -

AO R1 - Emma won 6-3 6-2 against Germany's Tamara Korpatsch.

Coco Gauff will be a bit more of a test.

"Raducanu, ranked 77th in the world, acquitted herself very well against the American seventh seed but a lack of matches told in a 6-3 7-6 (7-4) defeat.  Had she been able to take one of two set points at 5-4 in the second - which would have forced a deciding set - it might have led to a different outcome."
