Emma's outfit at the Met Gala (like the Oscars but for fashion) - other tennis players attending included Sharapova, the Williams sisters, Fernandez, Auger-Aliassime, Osaka (who was a host).

#MetGala News: The following celebrities will be seated at the CHANEL table and will be wearing CHANEL:

Kristen Stewart
Lily-Rose Depp
Margaret Qualley
Whitney Peak
Pharrell Willams + Helen Williams
Emma Raducanu 


 I'm assuming that these stars just get these off a peg as it were and put them back at the end of the night? No clue how much they cost, or the nuisance value of carting stuff around!

It's a great article. The British press gets rightly criticized for hyperbole but I don't mind it if it's written this intelligently.

And I felt the same way - she definitely shifted the paradigm of women's tennis. Watching Leylah and Emma as they swashbuckled their way through the draw was magnificent yes, but it also magnified the mental weaknesses of some of the top players. I believe that this victory will be noted in the locker room not just for its historical significance but as a warning shot to the top 10-20 - they must do better. The next few years of the WTA tour might well be defined by who is willing to be clutch in the biggest moments.

Did any notice that Maya Sharif who Emma beat in qualies just won the WTA 125 in Karlsruhe. ? That will make her (and Egypt where she is star)feel better.. Last week an Egyptian girl very very kindly helped me put up my tent and I gathered how big Mayar is in Egypt)
