    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.
    Yep my two boys are playing twice a week now…bollocks to football next to no chance of making it

    Her mother is Chinese, her father is Romanian and she was born in Canada. She moved to UK when she was 2 and has lived here ever since. She has a British passport. That'll do for me.

    On that basis she is far more British than Mo Farah or Chris Froome, just 2 examples! Atleast her formative years were spent in UK.

    It's after 11pm and the second set has just started. The US Open is all the way out in Queens. It's going to be a late night for most of the people at the stadium.

    Yeah, that Andy Murray eh, heís worse than Jacob Rees-Mogg isnít he. Strange that you decide to reply like that to a post made almost eleven hours earlier and yet, in that time, no one posted anything remotely along thw lines you suggest. Certainly, tennis had that sort of image when I was a kid, golf did as well, as did cricket to some extent, but, if it was true once, itís not any more.

    By the way, in the actual tennis, Raducanu is leading 6-1, 3-1.

    6-1, 6-4 to Radacanu to set up an all teenage final. The one potential problem I see for her is that it’s all been a bit too easy for her so far.

    The first qualifier in history, women's or men's to reach the final of any Grand Slam

    Thatís not a problem at all.
    Sheís made it look easy. A class act.

    Just noticed that the men's doubles final is Joe Salisbury and partner against Jamie Murray and partner. All we need now is a world class male singles player.

    It might be if the Final turns out to be a real battle. Fair play to Sakkari, she fought really hard towards the end to hold her serve twice despite facing a stack of break points - I started watching at 3-0 in the first set and, apparently, Radacanu had come back from 15-40 down in both of her service games, but she was never threatened on serve at all while I was watching, so her opponent, for all of the competitiveness she showed in those late service games, never really laid a glove on her as far as Radacanu's own serve goes.

    In saying that, Radacanu just comes over as a real natural who instinctively makes right, and clever, decisions on court - it's a contradiction in terms, but she's an experienced player at the age of eighteen in so many ways and you get the feeling that she has another level to go to yet if she needs to.

    You can sign up to play in Heath park for £40 a year, you can then book as many times a day or week as you want….bit out there eh?
    There was nothing like it when I was a kid, and only 1 indoor court in cardiff.

    projected to rise to 32 in the world rankings.
    amazing stuff.

    the other teenager she's facing in the final has arguably got some even bigger scalps on her route to the final.

    Don't know your age, but when I was a kid in the 80s my parents paid a pound a week so we could use the tennis courts at pentyrch. It wasn't a great surface, obviously, but was cheap and accessible.
