Emma Raducanu

Raducanu makes history at US Open

Victory for Raducanu, who is making her debut in New York, means she will rise to the cusp of the world's top 50 and become British women's number one.

In only her second Grand Slam appearance, world number 150 Raducanu has become only the third woman ranked outside the top 100 to reach a US Open semi-final.

Down an early break, the Briton recovered swiftly to win four straight games to close out the first set in which she had seven forehand winners and three aces.
