    Martina Navratalova was raving about her yesterday.

    With Barty Osaka and Williams out she could actually win it.

    This girl featured on the cover of Vogue this week.

    That must have been prepared some time ago

    If that hasn't turned her head, she is a very composed young lady!

    I hope she goes on and wins the tournament but in any event she has a great future.

    she's already earned €675000, which will double if she wins her next match, and double again if she wins the final

    We do like to "adopt" people that are good at sport though.

    Play for your national team because one of your grandparents had that nationality.
    Play for a national team because you have lived somewhere for 7 or 8 years. Truly adopt a star.
    in fairness she probably feels English/British because she's lived here during her formative years.

    Setting aside the less that easily defined notion of nationality (as many people straddle mulitiple cultures, may have lived in several countries and their parents may have emanated from other parts of the world) is nationality that important in sports where people compete as individuals anyway?

    it's an interesting subject.
    a large amount of the coverage and media attention she's received here is presumably because she's British.
    and that will probably translate into sponsorship opportunities here that are greater than would otherwise be the case.
    although her youth and metioric rise in the rankings and performances as a qualified are earning her plenty of fans at the us open it seems.

    amazing to think that in terms of career earnings she's probably earned a similar amount in 9 months this year as I have in 20 years.
    by next week she will possibly have earned more than I will in my entire working life.

    can she create a pivot table on excel as well as me though?
    probably yes.

    Re: Emma Raducanu

    Even I can create a pivot table in Excel.

    Well I could create one 15 years ago when I took early retirement!

    I wonder if she can write a COBOL or RPG II program though (do people still write in COBOL these days. And has anyone on here even heard of RPG!!!)).

    My computer skills are very niche these days. Though I used to be a dab hand at SQL as well

    Weeing in the vicinity of the river running through Taunton is more likely to raise the Tone.
