  1. He's ridiculous. I can't think of any other athlete in any sport whose physique and style are so opposed to each other.
  2. Would be laughable to have a fourth when Fury should rightfully have swept all three.
  3. I have not. The only disputed territories I have been to are Kosovo and, you know, Tower Hamlets. Was going to take a trip to Abkhazia during a planned holiday in Georgia last year, but COVID put paid to that.
  4. She has guaranteed a lifetime of support at Flushing Meadows though!
  5. I think you have misread my post. I am saying that her achievement is vastly more impressive than Jason and Laura Kenny winning multiple medals in slightly different cycling disciplines after receiving huge amounts of support and funding over more than a decade.
  6. I didn't see that from the match. Raducanu had her best success when she really went for the lines. She struggled to hit through Fernandez in the middle of the court. Fernandez also has significantly better touch at the net right now. What Emma seems to have that Fernandez doesn't is absolute calmness under pressure, and the ability to forget the last lost point.
  7. That's prize money for what she has achieved, not funding for what it has been decided she should achieve.
  8. I wonder how much funding she has received compared to the fucking cyclist medal churners.
  9. When you put it like that, it's actually quite hard to imagine anyone ever having a better day.
  10. That's mad. Fucking maverick.
  11. For me, this is by far and away the highlight of the night.
  12. There's also no way she addresses the addressees of her letters beneath her own name rather than top left.
  13. This is what I'm hoping. Fernandez is surely going to want revenge for this. Hope it's the first of many classics.
  14. Even my missus, who proclaimed that she "fucking hates tennis" just two hours ago was raging when that happened. Amazing stuff from Emma. Unbelievable.
  15. This is so fucking tense.
  16. Indeed, but Fernandez has beaten 3 of the top 5 seeds. By any measure, Raducanu has had the easier draw, but she can only beat what's in front of her, and has done so astonishingly well. Hopefully the easier run will mean she's fresher for the final.
  17. An astounding run so far. The names Fernandez has beaten have to make her favourite, but she's also made harder work of it.
  18. Very sloppy in the first half, but the mark of the man is that he didn't panic or let his head drop, he just got on with it and once he settled down he ran the show
  19. Balogun turning into Maldini today was unexpected to say the least.
  20. Just wide, Crocker says, as the ball sails 6 feet past the goal.
