Emma Is The Most Marketable Player In History.

Is Rolex with by women?
Hopefully Rolex drops Fed and picks up Emma.
lol come on. That's never gonna happen. Fed is like Rolex's most popular and well-known ambassador. Rolex does have some females too on their ambassador list. Muguruza is one female tennis player I know of that's part of Rolex. So, wouldn't be surprised if they try to sign Emma.

If Rolex has room to sign only one of the two, Rolex would definitely consider signing the active player and dropping the retired player.

Rolex is worn as jewelry for men, so males are a better fit most of the time.
What is the Rolex equivalent for females?

I wonder how good it is for the sport when jewelry, cocktail dress or wine cellar people lure the young talented athletes into their prowess. Emma's a very young, beautiful and great athlete. What she should sell is not her look but athleticism for the good of tennis. This means that producers of whatever related to the sport ought to approach her with decent proposals that do not affect her development but ours, the rest of the tennis world; and, that is how the history should be written.

Think she has yet to graduate high school in London (equivalent of 12th grade in U.S.).
Has she studied Calculus yet?
most probably yeah...she completed British equivalent of High school earlier this year before grass season. Some British posters on here can correct me if I am wrong - from what I have read, in UK, instead of 11th & 12th, people do something called A-levels where they select few specific subjects and focus only on them in 11th & 12th. Universities mainly accept an application based on these A-level scores. She took up Maths & Economics and passed with A* in Maths which is apparently the highest possible grade and 'A' in Economics which is 2nd highest possible grade. Her career path is definitely different than most of the tennis pros as she never enrolled in any acadaemy. She was doing both traditional school and tennis side by side which is super rare among tennis pros.

This was a pic she posted on her instagram back in April when she was preparing for her A levels exam

If the UK system is like India, what America calls eleventh and twelfth grade is called Pre University 1 and Pre University 2. After tenth grade, the students there decide if they want to enroll in a university path curriculum. That is what we should do here to cull the dunderheads.

But Calculus is rarely taught in twelfth grade, unless the high school student takes advanced placement courses. That was the way it was in the 1990s. Maybe things have changed now.

The Changing Face of Calculus: First-Semester Calculus as a High School Course
*This article will appear in the August/September issue of FOCUS
David M. Bressoud, Macalester College


Once upon a time, calculus was the first college-level mathematics course taken by mathematically talented students. The students in first-semester calculus were mathematically motivated, generally well prepared, and they were seeing these ideas for the very first time. This is no longer true. Most of our best-prepared mathematics students arrive in college with credit for at least the first semester of calculus, many of them with credit for both semesters. Despite steady growth in majors in science and engineering, enrollment in first-semester calculus has been flat or slightly declining at both two- and four-year undergraduate programs. It is the College Board?s

Advanced Placement Calculus Program that has been growing steadily at 7?8% per year (see figure 1).
Figure 1: Mainstream Calculus I Enrollments. Fall two- and four-year college and university enrollments from [4] . AP Calculus enrollments from The College Board (most recent years available at [1]).

In 2004 over 225,000 high school students took the AP calculus exam. This number is far larger than the number of students who took mainstream first-semester calculus in all four-year undergraduate programs in the Fall of 2000. By the time of the next CBMS survey in 2006, we can expect that more students will take an AP Calculus exam than will take mainstream Calculus I in the Fall of 2005 in all 2-year and 4-year institutions combined.

First-semester calculus has become a high school topic for most of our strongest students. This has several implications:

1. We should ensure that students who take calculus in high school are prepared for the further study of mathematics.
2. We should address the particular needs of those students who arrive in college with credit for calculus.
3. We should recognize that the students who take first-semester calculus in college may need more support and be less likely to continue with further mathematics than those of a generation ago.

calculus is a very common high school class unless you are a complete dunderhead

Our Lloyd can integrate with the best of them

She definitely has done some calculus at A-level, upto differential equations, and possibly started with matrices in linear algebra. Also her getting A* now honestly doesn't say much anymore, not to say she couldn't get it on merit but because of covid grades have jumped dramatically.

thanks for correcting...I am just going of by what I have read online as I don't have much idea regarding how UK school system works

Is Rolex worn by women?
Rolex should drop Fed and pick up Emma.
yes, Rolex is also worn by women, in the same fashion as men. it is mostly used to tell the time.. lol

better yet, Rolex should drop Cheatsipas and sign up ER, so they can claim another "youngest" tennis player... lol

Maybe there's something I did to influence the algorithm (I don't think I've read or watched a whole lot about Emma in the days since the US Open) but I don't remember ever seeing so much content about a tennis player popping up on my Facebook feed as I have about Raducanu in the last couple of weeks. Purely anecdotal, but seems like she became a superstar overnight.

How many % of that 88% were worn by women (wearing men’s size watches)?

I think they made the cut at 34mm diameter, counting them as women's watches.
Considering that I own two older 34mm Rolexes (Oyster Precision & Air King) the 88 % men's watch number is maybe even too low.

Yeah. But I think in the recent years, ladies are more interested in larger watches. Not that there is anything wrong with that.
I have a few that is smaller than 40, but all non-Rolex. All mine are between 40 and 42.

Those are some big whoppers for a lady!
