Bloody hell! And she's not just beating people, she's destroying them.

Really looking forward to watching her in the final.

If she wins that she's going to have the world at her feet. Not only is she supremely talented but she's a good looking girl as well, so she's going to have sponsors lining up to sign her.

I just hope that she can cope with the pressure that's going to come her way and that when she inevitably has a bad run, or a bad result, the media don't destroy her.

Yeah, she's got it all which makes her a sponsors dream. They will be falling over themselves to get her to sign for them.

I'd love her biggest success to be that she remains humble with all the well deserved fame and glory. Pretty sure that's guaranteed listening to her.

Really is the most remarkable rise I can think of ever, in any sport; there have been younger grand slam winners but they were all known more widely than she was (Becker winning Wimbledon unseeded at seventeen springs to mind), until Wimbledon nobody outside of tennis freak circles knew a thing about her.

If it was a film  it'd be dismissed as being totally ridiculous.

Bryson DeChambeau being a dick (unsurprisingly), entering a long hitting contest and saying, "In golf, it's the one thing where you can judge your accomplishments by a number."

Golf, uniquely among sports I think, has a par score for every hole so every round is judged by a number, man's an idiot.

Longest drive for show short game for dough.

Jimmy Greaves dead, such a lovely man. Will watch the Spurs game later though hadn't planned to. Sure there'll be a tribute, what a talent he was.

Indeed, he went through bad times then reinvented as a pundit, Saint and Greavesie was a must watch on ITV late 80s and for my eldest who got into football just before the 90 World Cup.

I've seen worse tackles in football. This looks mistimed but don't think it's malicious, he's just been too slow to react and pull out of the challenge.

Not malicious!? 

The full back is clearly lining up a kick and rather than trying to block the kick he goes in for a very high tackle, almost head first. 

That is as pre-meditated as it comes and I know this having done a few like that myself! Some opportuties are just too good to miss 😂
