    I realise there are not many tennis fans out there, but this young lass is a British, yes British Grand Slam finalist at the US Open.
    It is on Channel 4 tonight if anyone is interested.

    The Canadians should be happy whoever wins as Emma was born there.

    Yes, although Leyla Fernandez is Canadian and I hear she is doing very well. Ah wait that's what you are referring to.

    If Emma wins I'm sure our media will be sure to proclaim her Canadian connecrion.

    How refreshing to see a young person have the mental strength and fortitude to be successful in this way and then speak so well and with maturity afterwards.

    I am a Canadian and a tennis player.
    Emma has super star potential. Only one thing will get in her way of dominating the sport for the next 15 years. And, that one thing is FAME.

    Caught the highlights this morning. Nice to see good sportsmanship and no grunting or screaming on every stroke.
