Seems China is not ignoring her


Her victory trended on Weibo; one hashtag, "18-year-old ethnic Chinese young player wins US open championship," has been viewed more than 200 million times, while the video of her Mandarin message has been viewed more than a million times.

Behind a paywall, but advertising that Royal Albert Hall exho from Nov 25th-28th. She's basically gone from a nice side attraction to the main attraction :LOL:.

No finalised plans to return to the UK

Government discussing a reception for her.

Lots of sports want her as a guest of honour - England football, England rugby, England women's cricket. Also invited to the world premiere of the new James Bond movie in London on Sept 28.

Jonathan Ross (UK chat show) has invited her, and another, Graham Norton, is expected to do similar.

Anyone on here in the London area tempted to go to that tennis event?

REVEALED: Tim Henman joined Emma Raducanu's team to celebrate the 18-year-old's stunning US Open win - and it was a Sweet Caroline sing-a-long before champagne and sushi in her hotel suite!

She had a conversation with Big Bozza today:


A Downing Street spokesperson said: “The Prime Minister spoke to Emma Raducanu this afternoon to congratulate her on her fantastic victory at the US Open.

“He praised her determination, skill and mental strength during a series of tough matches, and said the whole of the UK had united behind her success.

“Both the Prime Minister and Emma agreed on the importance of continuing to support grassroots tennis, and in encouraging young people to take up the game.”



They absolutely do need to take advantage of this amazing achievement. You couldn't really have asked for a better spearhead to drive popularity, interest, and growth.

Hasn't taken the Daily Mail long to start doing what it does best : taking someone's life apart piece by piece until they get their 2 pounds of flesh.

I always thought he was her secret boyfriend, he is in the background of almost every social video and when emma was at davis cup messages from family, he was the one giving her a message and you could see all the others grinning. Good for her and maybe she will stay in USA for more tennis, got to leave the nest some day.
