New York – Eighteen-year-old British Emma Raducanu became the first tennis player to win a grand slam title after advancing from qualifying. In the final of the US Open, she won over a year older Canadian Leylah Fernandez after sets 6: 4 and 6: 3.

Thanks to her triumph, Raducanu will move from 150th place to 23rd place in the world rankings. He will credit $ 2.5 million to his account, over 53 million crowns.

Raducanu played three qualifying matches and seven in the main event and did not lose a single set. In the final, she played with Fernandez more strongly and took the lead 2: 0. Immediately she lost the serve, but during the service her opponent had a lot of breakballs and used another for 6: 4.

At the beginning of the second set, left-handed Fernandez broke through the British hand at 2: 1, but there was no turnaround. Fast-paced Raducanu turned to 5: 2.

She did not use two matchwords when the Canadian woman was serving and then went to serve. However, she lost 30:40 and rubbed her left knee while catching the ball, had the bleeding treated, which Fernandez did not like, and discussed with the tournament supervisor. After a break, Raducanu turned the breakball away, luckily turning the second and third matchwords into her match with her second ace.

The daughter of a Romanian father and a Chinese mother born in Toronto is the second British winner of the US Open. Virginia Wade succeeded 53 years ago. Raducanu won the grand slam in the second start of the Big Four tournament.
