Emma Raducanu....

Reminiscent, if you're old enough, of Boris Becker winning Wimbledon aged 17 in 1985.  He was unseeded and largely unknown, but presumably didn't have to qualify since Raducanu is the first to get to a final having qualified - assuming that accolade refers to all the grand slam tournaments and not just the US?

I hope the British press don't ruin her life.

All grand slams, anywhere, ever

And 2 and a half million bucks. Whoah. 

A fraction of what's coming through sponsors and others.  She's highly marketable - way more charisma and poise than Andy Murray, at 18 years of age! Incredible. As I said a couple of days ago - hope the press don't ruin her life.
