Tennis News : Qualifier Emma Raducanu wins US Open 2021

Emma Raducanu completes her historic run through the US Open by defeating Leylah Fernandez 6-4, 6-3 for her first Grand Slam title. Fernandez had knocked out three top-five players on route to the final but could not find the energy for a comeback after playing four straight three-set matches and Raducanu emerged victorious after an hour and 51 minutes. Raducanu became the first player in the professional era dating back to 1968, to come through the qualifying rounds to reach the final of a grand slam tournament. The 18 year-old Briton then won it, becoming the youngest Grand Slam champion since 17 year-old Maria Sharapova won at Wimbledon in 2004. In just her second Grand Slam tournament, Raducanu also ends the tournament as the first player since Serena Williams in 2014 to not drop a set at the US Open.
