Just wow....young Radacanu is breaking all the records, she never seems flustered with break points against her, 7 break points she faced on her first 2 service games and she batted them away to lead 3-0, an absolute joy to watch and hopefully she finishes the job....surely destined to be a future world number 1

An astounding run so far.

The names Fernandez has beaten have to make her favourite, but she's also made harder work of it. 

Emma has beaten the Olympic champ, Rogers (who put out Barty) and Sakkari (who beat 4th, 6th and 10th seed). Without dropping a set or even going to a tie break. Both playing out their skin.

Emma has a stronger serve and excellent return.

She killed Sakkari almost every time on her second serve. She hasn't had a weak shot all tournament. Her backhand in the semi was outstanding too.

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.

What a beautiful young Canadian Fernandez is. And what talent.

Hopefully a Canada v GB final.

My two homes 😀

What a talent indeed. What a final it will be. Watching from Victoria BC , previously from Greenock.

The big thing for me is the ease she wins her sets....I think the furthest she has been taken is to 4 games (twice I think) she has absolutely mauled her way through sets....I make her favourite based on that alone
