Raducanu takes the first set 6-4. :thumbs2
As [mention=6025]BuddieinEK[/mention] said, brilliant tennis, pace and power from two young women who are not muscular, Fernandez is especially slight. 
A great watch, a great game. :happyclapper:happyclapper:happyclapper
This is mesmerising.
Fantastic tennis.

Raducanu wins. :happyclapper
6-4 6-3
One of the best lady's tennis matches I've watched.
This girl could potentially be massive, and could fill the gap left by Murray being competitive in the slams for Britain.
Glad it didn't go to three sets. 
Night night from me. :byebye
I'd go further.

One of the best tennis matches I've watched.

That was sublime.

Two amazing young talents.

Don't really watch much tennis at all these days. Lost interest when the likes of McEnroe, Connors, Graf, Borg etc retired and personality was largely lost from the game.

However it was an entertaining match to watch, and a very good performance from both Canadian nationals.

However, I think it's more a reflection of the lack of high quality players in the women's game at the moment, that they were in the final. Although they were there on merit.

IMO if either of them had been up against either of the William's sisters in their prime, they'd have been handed a lesson in tennis. There's not that level of quality or consistency in the game these days.

However, the opportunity is there for both of them, if they can stay fit, to develop further and emulate the achievements of the aforementioned sisters.

I enjoyed the final mainly because I had a vested interest.

It was the same going back some years, liked watching Henman, Murray, well, that speaks for itself so I watched a lot of tennis.

Since Murray has slipped away not so much but Raducanu, and it's early days, certainly has reignited my interest. 

The hard work starts now, maintaining this level/standard will be a bigger test.

Well done Murray, a quarter final and two good victories to get there. 

Former world number one Andy Murray said he is seeing signs of improvement in his game after reaching his first ATP quarter-final in two years on Wednesday with a comfortable victory over Canada's Vasek Pospisil at the Moselle Open.

The 34-year-old Briton, who had hip surgeries in 2018 and 2019, has not been able to get back to the kind of form that helped him win three major titles and two consecutive Olympic singles gold medals in London and Rio de Janeiro.

Murray, who has slipped to 113th in the rankings, showed glimpses of his old self on Tuesday when he rallied to beat world number 26 Ugo Humbert of France -- the highest-ranked opponent he has defeated this year.

He then beat world number 66 Pospisil 6-3 6-3 to reach the last eight stage at an ATP tournament for the first time since winning in Antwerp in October 2019.

Murray out, put up a fight in the first set, faded in the 2nd.

Oh well.

Cameron Norrie, some great wins to reach the final at Indian Wells. :happyclapper

He has reached 6 finals this season

Winning 47 matches

I don’t think anywhere near the same league as Murray, but certainly gives us someone to keep an eye on

Add in Emma Radacanu , then been enjoyable recently for British Tennis
