What a staggering achievement. And she never dropped a set in the whole tournament.

Including in sodding qualifying. Which isn't a phrase anyone's ever needed to use about a winner before.

This is like Halesowen winning the FA Cup, without conceding a goal or winning by fewer than three goals in any match.

And beating Arsenal in the Final to make Piers Moron look an even bigger arse than normal.

Emma Raducanu has deservedly been catapulted into stratospheric superstar status. Has Pep put a bid in yet ?

Stunning performance by a wonderful player.
Like most we Ďfellí for her during Wimbledon and look forward to her dominating tennis for years to come.

And even if she doesnít, what an achievement she already has.

I guess it will be. Purely in terms of Tennis Boris Becker winning Wimbledon at 17 was the greatest.
