Didn't she beat Conchita that tournament?A few days on, and sometimes I still can’t believe we have a female British GS champion. This compared to the dark day of the late 90’s where our biggest achievement was Sam Smith making the 4th round of Wimbledon 1998. But then in that 4th round she was swatted aside by Tauziat 6/3 6/1.
Over the years we have had so many players where we witnessed mental fragility (Konta, Watson et al) - Emma is in a different league to these players in terms of mental strength. Konta really must be scratching her head, she’s been busting her chops for over a decade now.
