Which one isn’t?
Funny how people get so emotional about the nationality thing in tennis. Don't recall people ever saying Sterling is Jamaican and not English.
I reckon I could get 3 fingers in.
Not a huge fan of tennis but to go from rank 300 and something to grand slam winner in about 6 months is a phenomenal achievement
It’s probably because nobody cares about tennis. Cricket is the same, half of the team a while ago weren't English.
Sterling isn’t English btw
****ing awesome ... qualifier winning a grand slam without dropping a set? ... up there with Leicester City butt ****ing the 'Big 6' in winning the Premier League IMHO ... and I should know
Who won then bro?
Dont leave us hangin
Its ok i just checked.
Well done to the young lady.
Still dont care tho
... figures ... but put it this way ... she didn't buy a trophy ... that should help
Nah im happy for her like but tennis aint my thing, good for her tho its a great story
Seriously now ... one of the greatest sporting achievements of my lifetime ... and I've been here 60 years ...
Is it that big really? Cos shes so young?
You know how many of those fit tennis ladies I wid?
The British citizen isn't Canadian.
She's lived here since she was two. All of her schooling and tennis coaching has obviously come in the UK.
She was born in Canada but she's British.
She's the first qualifier to win a grand slam.
Cant believe theres debate about it tbh.
Quite obviously British like.
I thought only Andy Murray got this treatment cos he's a jock cry arsing **** but we like his trophies.
Give me that in football terms?
Like Celtic winning the Champions League this year
Pretty good then
She actually holds dual nationality - has both Canadian and British passports, but has been raised in the UK and its the LTA who have essentially covered the costs of her training and travel since she showed promise.
People like Sucky and Trebs who were claiming she is not as British as someone born in the UK clearly have some racist traits as they seem to be implying that we should take less pride in her performance than that of someone who was born in the UK. As someone who has family members who were born outside the UK but have made the UK their home I find this deeply offensive.
