TAN’S SUPERFAN IS BACK 

A 10-year-old girl has emerged as an unlikely star of Wimbledon 2022. Jing Robinson is the niece of Harmony Tan’s coach Sam Sumyk and became an internet sensation as the BBC followed her enthusiastic support of the Frenchwoman during her first-round upset of Serena Williams.
