Which two maestros do Raducanu vs Fernandez call to mind?Uncategorized
The gripping women’s final of the US Open, with two brilliant teenagers opening out a new era in world tennis, was a study in contrasts.
One player was forceful, tense, fast, ultra-focussed, risk-proofed.
The other smiled a lot and seemed to do much less. Every now and then she would take an impulsive punt at an impossible shot.
She came out the winner.
I kept thinking of two middleaged maestros in a major European capital, men of far greater experience who exhibit almost exactly the same dichotomy of character.
