Raducanu

She won't be considered a champion until she does it in multiple opens...
 
Yep wonderful achievement, now comes the big bucks.

IRS: hold my beer
HMRC: wait what, hold my beer too
Raducanu: my woke teachers lied to me, woe is me, wah wah wah, poor the raducanu
Panama: don't worry, we got this

That's bollocks. Shes ripped up the history books.

I think what you meant is she won't be considered 'a great'. Until she wins multiple opens. Or completes the slam.
 


Hahhaha perhaps I underestimated her, this is magnificent, she knows exactly where the sponsorship monies are coming from. An easy +3459 social credits for raducanu.

Young, attractive, intelligent, and successful athlete.

Makes me sick.

I think she could become the wealthiest tennis player of all time, as long as she keeps her mouth shut and avoids social media when china annexes taiwan, see no evil hear no evil, and then it's plain sailing.
 
She was totally amazing. The first time a qualifier has got to a final of a slam, never mind won it. This was what, her third ever senior tournament or something? I'm not an expert in tennis, but the quality of her play (and that of her opponent) seemed to be pretty remarkable.

Well she already avoided mentioning 9/11 on the anniversary of 9/11.. so....

Yeah, she'll soon sign a sponsorship deal worth gazillions.
 
Up there with the greatest ever sporting achievements.
Why is that? Only time will tell if that is the case.

Oh like the taxes that pay for nurses, police, military, roads, bridges, teachers etc...
Do you think even after paying her taxes she will have enough money left over that she still be rich?

In regards to point 1.

Because no player.. Male or Female has won a major as a qualifier.

Because no female player has won a slam winning 20 sets in a row.

Because she won a slam on only her second attempt.

She the sheer amount of games had break point chances in. Was something ridiculous like 75% of all games.

It was one of the great sporting achievements.
 
She's a superstar.

I was very sad for her when she suffered that panic attack against Tomaljovic at Wimbledon and had to pull out but couldn't have been more pleased for her
last night...she absolutely demolished everyone she met & took the US open by storm.

World at her feet, good for her.
 
I like the grand slam tally to stay at 20 20 20 between the three modern day greats of the game. So I liked that result even though it's painful for Djokovic to fall one match short of calendar grand slam....he deserved that feat.

But he had luck earlier in the season when Nadal couldn't stay the course of the match with him in French Open because of his foot injury. Without which he doesn't get this close.

Medevdev just out Djokovic'ed Djokovic and it's an ominous sign, and I think the grand slam winning days for Djokovic, Nadal and Federer is over. Djokovic may still have some chances and will compete, but I feel its game over for Nadal and Federer and they will both tour once to retire.

I am no tennis expert by any means, I rarely watch it. However, I know enough to ask why you think Nadal's days are numbered ? He is the greatest clay court specialist the world has ever known. Even you said, Djokovic would have found it hard to have won the French if a Nadal hadn't sustained an injury.
He and Djokovic could get close to 25, and Nadal no too far behind.
 
It's just based on Nadal managing this foot problem his entire career and there is no clear solution. So at 35/36 I don't think he will be able to come back to grand slam winning fitness/form again. Unlike Federer Nadal's game still takes a heavy physical toll, even though he improved his serve and started attacking more since hitting 30...so I don't really feel he will be able to play till he is 40 like Federer.

Playing up to 35/36 at high level is intself an exception, I don't think any more could be expected.
 
I'm inclined to agree on Nadal. He may win 1 or 2 more French titles. I think Djokovic may have a few left in him though.

Federer is done.

Who are the pretenders to the throne challenging Nadal and Djokovic?
