Never seen anything like Raducanu, absolutely amazing. Watching Becker in 1985 felt impossible and he was the world No.20!
Christopher Clarey Emma Raducanu, an 18-year-old from Britain, becomes the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam singles title. Takes the US Open with an ace to close out her 6-4 6-3 victory over Leylah Fernandez of Canada. Did not drop a set in 10 matches. One of the great tennis stories.

What people are saying?
Ben Rothenberg This set has been *so* good. I keep thinking, Raducanu and Fernandez could have drawn each other in the first round and played on like Court 6 and very few people would have even flagged it as one of the marquee first round matches.
SeadogMariner She left Canada when she was 2. If she had dual nationality it would be with Romania rather than Canada. Anyway Canada has leylah, and she will no doubt win in the future many times.
