Emma Raducanu stands on the red carpet.

Victory Lap

It is still strange to think that even diehard tennis fans probably had never heard of Emma Raducanu four months ago. But now the US Open champion is a household name and in the spotlight wherever she goes.

This week, she found herself on the red carpet at the blockbuster film premier.

But then just a few days laterโ€ฆ

Amazing to think thatโ€™s the same person as the little kid ripping it up in this video.

She was awarded a wildcard to Indian Wells, which begins next week.

Fedal anniversaries

They may be absent from the tour right now, but Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are always having an impact. This week, they both celebrated some significant anniversaries and milestones.

For Federer, it was a flashback to a significant day in the history of the sport.

Rafael Nadal owns a lot of records, many that will never be broken. While his 13 French Open titles come to mind, his streak in the Top 10 may be his most untouchable mark.

Steffi still stands alone

In the NFL, there is a story that the 1972 Miami Dolphins, the only team to ever go undefeated in a season, pop the champagne once every team has lost their first game of the year.

Steffi Graf would have had cause to open some bubbly a few weeks ago at the US Open, were she so inclined. This week marked 33 years since she completed a feat that, thanks to Daniil Medvedev, she is still the only person to achieve.
