Emma Raducanu: 1 GS Wonder?

Repeatability is the key here, and we'll only know that down the track.

Too late.TTW already proclaimed her GOAT judging by the sheer number of threads about her.
That's unfortunate, as it shows some are easily swayed by the heat of a moment than knowing that a majors run--or winning the major is not a guarantee of GOAT-hood, or even a handful of majors. I remmeber this kind of nonsensical talk when Austin won her first (of two) majors (before the injuries)--the same with Ivanovic. Breathless, fantasy-drenched hype that rarely goes anywhere.

I believe Emma will do well in her tennis career. Taking into account the R4 Wimbledon withdrawal, I was a bit worried she would crack under the pressure as the USO progressed but she didnt! Emma was accused of choking at Wimbledon & the way she handled the bigger & more hostile USO crowd makes me believe she will go far. Many games were closer than the score suggested but never did see get overly emotional Eg. Constantly looking at her box for affirmation the way Layleh did. Emma just kept her head down & got on with it .... like a true Champion!

We have seen a lot of 1 slam wonders on the WTA. Will Emma be the next Ostapenko, or will she be a multi slam champion? Awaiting your comments!
Just stop mentioning Ostapenko. She's doing fine, really. There are worse one slam wonders than her.

Actually, TT hasn't crowned her the GOAT but rUDin 21 is projecting as he desperately wants her to be a 1 slam wonder. A lot of Djokovic fans seem to be inordinately upset with Emma and Leylah for stealing the thunder from his CYGS bid (which failed anyway, so what's the problem). How many times can we talk about Djokovic falling flat in the final to Medvedev? It's not much of a story, except for Djokovic fanboys.

Anyone blaming the finalists on the women's side for their final drawing a certain amount of attention is exhibiting willfully misplaced blame for something that rests with the audience and media of the 2021 USO. Djokovic's loss is his own problem, and on a personal note, I wanted him to win, but he did not, which is a "fault" of the two people in that men's final--no one else.

All eyes will be on her at IW. I expect her to get through the scrubs and then be stopped by the first legit player she meets. Not chokers like Bencic but someone like Svitolina, Sabalenka etc. Oh wait, they are all chokers lol. Ok.

Maybe she wins 10 more slams.
Maybe she had one insane run, falls back to earth, and slowly fades into oblivion.
Maybe she doesn't win more slams but has a decent career as a top 20.
Maybe...
