US Open: Emma Raducanu vs Leylah Fernandez
US Open: Follow live score and updates from the women’s final at Flushing Meadows in New York.
Preview: Tennis will have its youngest Grand Slam champion in 17 years when 18-year-old Emma Raducanu faces 19-year-old Leylah Fernandez.
It’s the first major final between unseeded players in the professional era and the winner becomes the youngest Grand Slam winner since Maria Sharapova’s victory at Wimbledon in 2004.
Fernandez has the tougher road to the final, with four straight three-set victories. Three of them were against players ranked in the top five. The Canadian has spent 12 hours, 45 minutes on the court, five hours more than Raducanu.
The qualifier from Britain hasn’t dropped a set in the tournament, trying to become the first player to win the US Open without doing so since Serena Williams in 2014.
Williams, then 17, played in the last Grand Slam final between two teenagers when she beat Martina Hingis, 18, at the 1999 US Open.
