Raducanu is going to be a huge star, not just for her tennis, but her personality - it seems impossible not to like her.

Raducanu is going to be a huge star, not just for her tennis, but her personality - it seems impossible not to like her.

Early days in her career but she’s certainly got the talent, charm and looks.

Looks like the sponsors are going to be queuing up for this one. Fill your boots.

Radacanu and Fernandez are such a joy to watch.

So refreshing and fun. Great competitors.

Tennis needs them.

At Wimbledon, Radder's mother didn't pack enough clothes for her, thinking she'd crash out after the first one or two rounds! At Flushing Meadows, she now has to rebook her airline tickets because she thought she'd crash out soon after the qualifying rounds!

Saw a video of her when she was being interviewed round about the age of 11 or so. Already very chatty, bubbly and intelligent. She also seems to enjoy interviews. How refreshing. But I hope the pressures won't get to her. Also good to see her choose to represent the country she grew up in and decide to finish and do excellent in her school-leaving exams. What a refreshing change to some of the antics we've been seeing lately.

It is amazing to think that she was in a perfectly ordinary UK high school until a few months ago, unaware that she was about to get a wildcard to Wimbledon.

Ah_so:

What was it, A-star in mathematics and A in economics, or something like that?

A much needed breath of fresh air in womens tennis after the repetitive histrionics of a certain attention seeker on the tennis circuit.
