Thread: Emma Raducanu

  1. #181

    Re: Emma Raducanu

    Rafa Nadal has been mentioned already in this thread I believe, but the truth is that, if anything, Emma Raducanu, as an eighteen year old qualifier, was more dominant in winning this tournament than Nadal was in winning all those French Opens when he was at his peak. It’s an incredible achievement and, surely, it’s not going to be a one off - even if is, no one can ever take this exceptional achievement away from her.

    Sport once again proves its ability to dumbfound anyone who thinks they’ve seen it all.

    So she wasn't bleeding? Struggling to see your point here.

    Mixed quality final, hard to gauge the level really but you definitely can only beat what is in front of you.

    If it is a one off it's a pretty special one.

    But I agree I can see her winning more. Probably quite a few more.

    Even Leicester's Premiership win pales into insignificance

    How is this 'adopt a star'?

    The magic of her story is that she has won from nowhere. She was hardly known six months ago, when she was also competing in tournaments as a Brit.

    It tells you what an achievement it was when itís the lead story on SSN, ahead of Ronny scoring 2 on his return debut

    Quite amazing to read his comments. Every commentator and pro I've heard all said the time out was enforced, posters on here have tried to re-echo what was being said by those who know the game, yet JR stubbornly believes his own opinion, despite the evidence demonstrating he was talking out of his arse again.

    I couldn't remember her working on her breathing, so I went to the replay on Prime and timed the break in play

    From the time she first reported it to the umpire to the time she went back to serve again was about 3 1/2 minutes which is well within the time allowed for a medical time out (which was in fact not actually called for a while until the medical technician had confirmed there was a problem and from this point it was about 2mins 30 seconds before she went back). After she had the bandage put on you saw the medic give the leg a final wipe over. The shot then cut away and and within 18 seconds you saw Raducanu walking back to start serving. At no point in the time since you saw the medic give that final check did you see any pictures of her "working on her breathing".


    And just to confirm the rules about blood here is the Grand Slam rule on medical time outs.
    From the 2021 Official Grand Slam Rule Book Grand Slam Tournament Regulations
    Article 1 General Section W Players rest/Medical Part 3f Bleeding

    If a player is bleeding, the Chair Umpire must stop play as soon as
    possible,
    and the Sports Physiotherapist must be called to the court by
    the Chair Umpire for evaluation and treatment. The Sports
    Physiotherapist,
    in conjunction with the Tournament Doctor if
    appropriate, will evaluate the source of the bleeding, and will request a
    Medical Time-Out for treatment if necessary.

    If requested by the Sports Physiotherapist and/or Tournament Doctor,
    the Referee in consultation with the Grand Slam Supervisor or Chair
    Umpire may allow up to a total of five (5) minutes to assure control of
    the bleeding.

    If blood has spilled onto the court or its immediate vicinity, play must
    not resume until the blood spill has been cleaned appropriately.

    Now I suspect you realise this and are just on a wind up. Why on earth you want to do a wind up on this thread escapes me.

    Maybe she was doing a Roberto Rojaz or a bloodgate to gain some time for herself?

    Just being a pedant like you with your stats I have a couple of posts before this one quoted the actual Grand Slam Rule on Medical Time Outs for Bleeding.

    Lets see him argue with that. No doubt he will anyway. Perhaps he will say she secreted a blood capsule somewhere and broke it open on her leg without being spotted by the multifarious cameras !!

    He can'

    Fantastic achievement for someone so young. As for the bleeding, you can see the blood had seeped through in the photos at the award ceremony.

    Didnít drop a setÖ.thatís amazing. Other players have taken almost 10 minute ďtoilet breaksĒ at key times in games, the Greek guy did it v Murray, itís allowed but it halts the rhythm of the game. I donít think it did for Emma, it could have easily gone the other way like she alluded to when speaking after saying Iím just glad I didnít do a double fault. There were so many break points you canít just refer to one

    Re: Emma Raducanu

    Regarding the time out, I couldn't imagine a worse time to have one, having to think about serving at break point down when already missed match point.

    I'm sure if Fernandez had a time out then Raducanu would also have been frustrated.

    Fernandez I thought missed a trick, she could have stayed focused at her end and maybe tried to gee the crowd up. Instead she wound herself up more and more, understandable though.
