Itís accepted it was a fantastic achievement from an unknown British girl. What I found very impressive, was her acceptance speech. Obviously well educated, didnít show any nerves in front of a huge crowd and shown to millions all around the world. I doubt if she would of had any sort of training for that.
Letís just hope, she remains very grounded and go on to be a role model for youngsters in the UK, rather than the trash on the likes of
Love Island etc.

It was even more incredible, given that she had that breakdown at Wimbledon, when nerves got the better of her and she was unable to continue after the panic attack.

I heard that after that Tim Henman helped her to find a new coach, and I suspect that she may have had help from a sports therapist/psychologist to give her the confidence that she showed in the US Open.

Yes, and talented outside the court, when she went in to a whole chapter in mandarin to talk to her family back home, I must confess, I had a tear in my eye! Beautuful Emma, just beautiful.

Yes, what a complete talent she is. Fully equipped, I hope, for what the future holds.

She looks to have good people around her, but the naivety of youth and all that. I doubt she realises how much her life will change, and what she may lose rather than gain. Here's hoping that she's one of those rare individuals who can ride the wave of massive public interest and not let it change them. It will be fascinating to see how her career progresses. A massive talent, exciting times ahead!

I think her parents will keep her grounded, especially her father, she hinted that they were her biggest critics and i"m sure grandparents in Romania and China will influence her parents to.

A massive talent, exciting times for British women's tennis (for tennis in general)!

Yes, life changing for lifestyle is great, but losing anonimity could be a curse. Hopefully a long tennis career will take up any negatives so much money could bring, lots of tournament travel etc, lucky her folks wont be far away!

I heard she could earn up to 100mil this year. Some are saying more. All those deals on every product imaginable - the mind boggles.

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

I'm sure Andy Murray could give her a few tips......

No doubt! He's been there, done that. She has a lot of good will too, being that she's achieved so much in such a short time, so is well positioned to get the right advice from the right people!

It really does. Crazy sums. According to Forbes the highest paid sportsperson of the past 12 months was Connor McGregor, earning US$22 million (on the field); US$158 million (off the field)

Ronaldo earned US$70 million (on the field); US$50 million (off the field)

So the degree to which sponsorship deals can boost earnings is pretty wild. And Emma arguably has both a rise to fame and worldwide earning potential (China too etc) that is hard to rival.

I heard playboy were offering her £10 million for just a centre spread, half hour of work, I thought that is scandalous, wait until she is at least 19!

was it really a breakdown? I don't know why people feel the need to make out she is tarnished by that episode - not saying you're saying that, but OK she may have been overwhelmed by the situation, but heat and physical exertion would have played their part, but even without that there's this underlying idea that she 'lost it' or showed some essential weakness. I quite like these stars, gymnasts, tennis players or whatever, who sometimes feel that they've had enough of the whole shabang and being everyone else's property, it's quite natural, just makes them human not weak or inadequate. Emma's come through that without being affected by all the mischaracterisation, it says a lot about her but also about the people around her. Fernandez too was great during and post match - sounded a bit dogmatic pre-match, but she was talking about her expectations, which are understandably very high.
