Bloody hell. That was tense! Sensational achievement at any age, but at 18 and in only her second grand slam, that is ridiculous! Well done, Emma!

Amazing. That first set was insane, Fernandez was her equal and more for parts of it, but Emma just applied so much pressure and then continued in that vein. Even when there was a bit of a wobble in the second she looked like the only person in the world it wasn't bothering. Ice cold.

Chapeau Emma. Chapeau Leyla. Feels like a rivalry for the next decade in tennis.

Incredible stuff! Just really off the scale. I salute Emma.
And Leyla.

Meant to just keep a check on it initially, , but ended up listening and reading the text on Five Live from start to finish. Scintillating stuff and what nerve and composure by an eighteen year old. Magnificent battle and well done both. All too often Brits are "nearly" competitors; Emma never felt like she wasn't a total winner. Surely a future Queen of the tennis scene. Go Girl... :pray:

Absolutely superb game ain't watched tennis in a while it got boring with all the power serving and few rallies.
Just hope the lass keeps a level head going forward.
Little aside, was happy to see the smirks blown off Fernandez and her mother the sister looks and acts a right piece too.

She’s 19 so for me was fine. I did find her family a bit ‘much’ but wondered if that was the reserved British in me. I don’t like having such a demonstrative box in a tennis match as it’s basically two individuals and you can be encouraging respectfully without acting so over the top. But different cultures and all that.
