Raducanu is Great Britain’s first female major champion in more than 40 years, and she has potential global appeal, as she holds Canadian citizenship, speaks Mandarin and has parents from Romania and China. She already has an apparel contract with Nike and a racquet contract with Wilson, and she can be sure that more brands will be calling.

The 2021 U.S. Open women’s draw routinely showcased the sport’s biggest stars, as 12 matches were played between Top 20 players, the most in a major since 2012. In the end, though, it was the sport’s next star, unseeded 18-year-old Emma Raducanu, who stole the spotlight from all of them.

Raducanu became the first qualifier to ever make a Grand Slam final, much less win the trophy. She did so without losing a set, gaining more than 1.24 million Instagram followers in the process.

Raducanu came to New York City with roughly 400,000 followers on the platform, helped by her breakthrough performance at Wimbledon earlier this year when she advanced to the fourth round before retiring due to breathing difficulty. She more than quadrupled her total in just 14 days, amassing more new followers than all players who made the fourth round of the men’s and women’s draws combined.

The best way to accumulate followers at the U.S. Open is to win, and Raducanu proved just that. She dwarfed runner-up Leylah Fernandez’s impressive gain of roughly a quarter million, who in turn more than doubled the next-highest player. Despite entering the tournament with just 16,000 followers, the 19-year-old Fernandez now has 273,000, not far from the counts of the top two ranked players in the world, Aryna Sabalenka (289,000) and Ashleigh Barty (371,000).

Last year, Osaka was the highest-grossing female athlete in the world by earning $50 million in endorsements, more than all active athletes other than Roger Federer, Tiger Woods and LeBron James. Raducanu will hope to achieve similar, sustained success on the court as Osaka, who has racked up four major titles in the past four years, in order to match her financial success off the court.

Raducanu pocketed $2.5 million for winning the U.S. Open, increasing her career prize money winnings nearly tenfold. Even though she has yet to win a WTA match outside of Grand Slams, one talent manager suggested that she could earn $100 million next year from sponsorships.

These Kings have fangs. In other campaigns, they have had good players, but the mentality they are showing in this campaign has not been known to them for a long time. Last night, receiving a Grizzlies without Ja Morant, they took advantage of that absence to muscle up and win with the emphatic that reflects the final score: 133-100.

The Californians dominated the game almost at all times, but it wasn’t until the last quarter that they dealt a final blow that is measured by a 33-10 run. They swept Memphis for 12 minutes in which the Tennessees had no response to what was coming their way.

“It was a great victory for the whole team. I think in the second half we were really good defensively,” says Mike Brown, the coach who is getting closer to returning Sacramento to the playoffs after 16 years of absence.

To achieve the aforementioned milestone, Brown has a large group of players of a very good level. Against Memphis, Domantas Sabonis had a triple-double of 14 points, 11 assists, and 10 rebounds, Trey Lyles had 24 points off the bench, rookie Keegan Murray went to 20 points, and Harrison Barnes had another 20 (15 of them in the first quarter).

Although the Kings did not leave the game sentenced until the last quarter, it was in the first that they left some mark on history. With 12 triples, they matched the most that had been achieved to date in such a space of time. Such offensive capacity led them to 47 points. The reality is that everything seems to be going well for those from the California capital, who have won seven of their last eight games to settle in third place in the Western Conference.

Memphis: three straight losses

It was clear that the time would come when the Grizzlies would have to slow down a bit. More than accommodated in the second position of the West, it is time to regulate efforts and take care of its essential pieces; and of course, there is none like Ja Morant. The point guard was absent last night and his team noticed it despite Jaren Jackson Jr.’s 19 goals and Desmond Bane’s 21. In any case, the team’s head coach, Taylor Jenkins, understands that it’s just a defeat and that they must keep gritting their teeth always thinking about the next game.

“We have to focus on getting better and doing better against Golden State. You just have to continue playing hard and be together while we find our rhythm, “he says.

As one of the nerve centers of Los Angeles entertainment, the Crypto.com Arena is no stranger to fans trying to get the attention of the stars. The most famous case in recent years was that of Rihanna and Laker Alex Caruso.

That video also went viral in NBA circles and on social media. But it is not every day that LeBron James stars in one of these episodes.

During the last game that the Los Angeles Lakers played at home, a fan in a courtside seat fixed her gaze for several seconds on the four-time MVP. LeBron seems to ignore her until, noticing her presence, he crosses glances with her.

This prompted nervous laughter from King James and silent rejoicing from the fan, who continued to smile at him.

Whether or not James and the blonde fan exchanged glances or this was a coincidence remains to be seen, but social media users have been having fun with it anyway.

Perhaps Savannah James, LeBron’s wife of ten years and high-school sweetheart, isn’t smiling so much.
