    But if her body language cues are anything to go by, the success is unlikely to go to her head, with Judi suggesting the teenager displayed great maturity during the match.

    1. ARRIVED MODESTLY AND SHOWED INDEPENDENCE ON COURT

    Walking onto the court at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center yesterday, Judi said Emma appeared 'modest' and did not indicate her 'status'

    Walking onto the court at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center yesterday, Judi said Emma appeared ‘modestand did not indicate her ‘status’.

    She pointed to the young athlete’s casual wave to the roaring crowd, detto: ‘Emma arrived using body language signals of modesty, like her low-positioned wave to the crowd, with the hand held below shoulder height, rather than raised in a signal of status.

    Judi said: ‘Players reveal so much about their state of mind and the methods they are using to motivate themselves towards a win and this often means non-verbal signals or rituals of focus like sitting staring during breaks in a bid to visualise or stay ‘in the zone’, or more emotional outbursts or rituals like muscle-clenching or muttering to themselves in anger.

    ‘They need to be their own coaches out there during a match and Emma should have been especially in need of some dramatic self-supporting behaviours as the crowd were primarily backing her opponent and her family were miles away back in the UK.

    Despite the crowd overwhelming cheering for her opponent, Judi said Emma did not seem to 'struggle emotionally'

    Emma mother and fatherIan and Renee Raducanu from Romania and China respectivelywere unable to attend the match due to Covid travel restrictions.

    però, despite their absence, Emma showed a remarkable amount amount of self-control, according to Judi, chi ha detto: ‘Emma looked so isolated out there in front of a crowd that was very noisily backing her opponent.

    ‘We saw no obvious glances to her coach to suggest a desire for support though, or any more reflective moments to suggest she was struggling emotionally.

    Lei ha aggiunto: ‘Instead though we saw a young woman in almost complete command and brimming with self-control.

    There was so little in the way of drama from her, even when she won.

    2. SHOWED FOCUSBUT WASN’T GLADIATORIAL

    Emma would perform 'a fist-shaking gesture to motivate or to reward herself during a match but the gesture often looks incongruent with the rest of her body pose'

    Judi went on to say that Emma’s body language showed her focus, detto: ‘To describe Emma as looking level-headed is an understatement.

    ‘During the match this sense of calm self-control was visual in her body language too.

    ‘During breaks her only sign of tension-burning came from the double leg-judder that she hid beneath her large towel, but above the waist she sat nibbling on bananas and even looking around at the crowd as though she was just another punter.

    ‘She even glanced across at her opponent a couple of times as though she felt she was playing a friendly rather than a Grand Slam title.

    ‘Top level players rarely look at or even acknowledge one another until the game is over, taking a more ‘gladiatorial’ approach.

    Judi said: ‘Emma will perform a fist-shaking gesture to motivate or to reward herself during a match but the gesture often looks incongruent with the rest of her body pose.

    ‘The tensing of the hand muscles is rarely accompanied by the normal angry facial expressions that players who see themselves as on-court ‘warriors’ will use.

    ‘Compared to the tantrums of some of the other, more experienced players, Emma looks more like a head girl calmly winning a school tournament.

    4. CONFIDENT BUT NOT ARROGANT LEADER

    And the teenager also showed a maturity well above her tender years during her post-match interview, with Judi saying she showed 'no unmanageable excitement'

    And the teenager also showed a maturity well above her tender years during her post-match interview, with Judi saying she showed ‘no unmanageable excitement.

    Judi revealed: ‘She finished looking like a confident but not arrogant leader, standing during her interview with her hands on her hips and her feet splayed in a ritual of calm confidence and power.

    ‘Her blink-rate was steady, suggesting no burst of adrenalin to suggest stress or even unmanageable excitement and her eye contact with the interviewer suggest she is not phased by media demands.

    Judi said: ‘There were no pseudo-infantile displays from her, which are those outbreaks of ‘cute’ body language that can follow success, like squealing and tears or self-diminishing rituals, such as legs crossed at the ankles, hands clasped tight and shoulders shrugged, or over-congruent emotional displays, like clutching the head; jumping up and down; throwing the arms about in mock excitement or giggling loudly.

    5. QUIETLY TOOK CONTROL OF INTERVIEW

    Emma 'quietly and calmly took control of [her post match] interview that was watched by millions around the world' said Judi

    Judi ha continuato: ‘Emma said what she wanted to say in a very polite but firm manner, pausing before her first answer to look around at the crowd as they cheered and then continuing to create her own pauses between each point to hear audience responses each time.

    She was even ‘highly magnanimousin victory, making sure she praised her opponent – 19-year-old Canadian Leylah Fernandezat the beginning of the interview.

    ‘Instead of answering the first question about herself she put herself in control of the interview in a way that even mature politicians don’t often manage, detto “prima di tutto…” and deflecting to her opponent by praising her first.

    ‘Emma self-punctuates, pausing with a mouth-pinch of determination and even when she was asked how she felt that Virginia Wade was rooting for her in the audience she referenced her other iconic supporter Tim Henman as well.

    Judi added that after Emma’s victory, there was ‘a moment on the stage when everyone was cooing over and cheering Leylah and the interviewer was standing right in front of Emma, blocking her from view’.

    Ma, lei disse, there was ‘no trace of any diva attitude or self-pity from [Emma].’

    The young athlete has previously won praise for her focus and attitude

    James Carlton, manager of Bromley Tennis Centre managerwhere Emma trained from the ages of 10 per 16 – detto Sky News the star was ‘incredibly single-minded and determined’.

    Ha aggiunto: ‘She works very hard. The centre is next to her school so she would be here before, dopo, and sometimes during.

    ‘We would often see her working on her schoolwork in between sessions.

    ‘She was here every day and when she was on court you could see she was putting everything into it. Doing that while maintaining her schooling and academia is even more impressive.
