O/T - tennis tonight

Post by redblueuptoyou » Sat Sep 11, 2021 10:24 am

Not sure how much interest there is in the US Open tennis final tonight on here but it’s an incredible achievement by both finalists to get there. Come on, Emma!

Just announced it will be on free-to-air television (Channel 4 sharing the Amazon Prime live stream) from 8pm.

BREAKING: Tennis fans - cancel your plans for tonight - Channel 4 is showing the @EmmaRaducanu US Open final live from 8pm. Pls share and spread the word.

Brilliant, I have Amazon Prime so was already planning on watching this but many people don't have it so this will make the match accessible for everyone.

On the court she wears a snazzy red and blue outfit. The design would look good on us, for next season? :-).

Watching her play the game, she is certainly a player we can be proud of.

Good luck to the girl, with a Romania father Chinese mother and being born in Canada, she should have half the world behind her. And of course she's British.

Good to see a changing of the guard with these two ladies. Best of luck to both of them although like most do have a favourite. The lack of grunting is also a bonus. Now we also need to sort out the mens tennis.

Watching it now - whatever happens both of these girls are going to be around for a while.

Really hoping Radacanu wins this!

Brilliant story, don’t think she’ll be too worried about those A level results now.
Made my night her victory

Fantastic matcb, two brilliant players who are a credit to the game. Amazing to have a qualifying player win a grand slam which has never happened before.

Best of all after the terrible year and a half tbat we have all had isnt it wonderful to have something to celebrate 😊
