MADRID, 12 Sep. (EUROPA PRESS) –
British tennis player Emma Raducanu culminated her historic time in New York this Saturday as champion of the US Open, the last ‘great’ of the season, by beating Canadian Leylah Fernandez in the final (6-4, 6-3).
Raducanu, 18, beat her also adolescent rival (19) and became the first player to win a ‘Grand Slam’ coming from the previous tournament. Raducanu’s path was also without giving up any set in his 10 games.
The new tennis heroine, more in her country as the first British in 40 years to win a ‘Grand Slam’, debuted three months ago on the WTA Circuit in Nottingham. Raducanu debuted his record with a US Open that Fernandez also wanted to make historic.
Both entered with outside and a couple of very long games that served a ‘break’ for each one. After making the 5-4, Raducanu pressed and the rest scored the first set. In the second set the Canadian seemed to take advantage, but four games in a row served Raducanu the trophy.
