Emma Radacanu's story is London's story. Born in Canada to Chinese and Romanian parents, she moved to London at two-years-old.— Sadiq Khan (@SadiqKhan) September 11, 2021
Here in London, we embrace and celebrate our diversity. And if you work hard, and get a helping hand, you can achieve anything. #USOpen 🇨🇦🇨🇳🇷🇴🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/9WXNU1xRz6
What a terrific display of competition & maturity from two exceptional players.— Billie Jean King (@BillieJeanKing) September 11, 2021
It is wonderful to see this generation living our dream.
I can’t remember a #USOpen with better crowd support. Thank you, NY, the greatest fans in the world.
And congratulations, Emma! pic.twitter.com/fQcOMkV3wk
People saying it’s crass or embarrassing to mention the prize money: the history of women’s tennis is of earning an insulting amount compared to men. It made me grin to hear Raducanu is COINING IT. And Billie Jean King, on that stage with her, helped make it possible. So yeah.— Alice Beverton-Palmer (@alice) September 11, 2021
