Emma Raducanu, the hope of British tennis, won the 2021 US Open women's singles title on Saturday, her first Grand Slam championship.
Raducanu, 18, beat her 19-year-old Canadian opponent, Leylah Fernandez, in straight sets 6-4, 6-3 in the all-teen final at Arthur Ashe Stadium in New York City.
Near the end of the exciting match, Raducanu had to have a medical timeout for bleeding to her left knee when she slid on the hardcourt surface.
"First of all, I really want to congratulate Leylah and her team. She played some incredible tennis and has beaten some of the top players in the world. The level was extremely high and I hope we play each other in many more tournaments and hopefully finals," Raducanu said and thanked her team, fans and everyone who watched the final.
