Emma Raducanu is into the final at US Open 2021.
The rising star of British tennis has advanced through the qualifying rounds at Flushing Meadows and into the second week of the tournament without dropping a set.
Raducanu, 18, hit the headlines at the Wimbledon Championships at the All England Club in July for reaching the Round of 16 stage at her first Grand Slam - and has gone even better in New York.
The teenager has since spent time working on her fitness in addition to regular matches on the North American hard courts in recent weeks, ahead of the US Open qualifying rounds.
Raducanu overcame 17th seed Maria Sakkari in straight sets - 6-1 6-4 - in the semi final, having beaten 11th seed Belinda Bencic 6-3 6-4 in the quarter finals and Shelby Rogers 6-2 6-1 in the last 16.
Here’s who Raducanu will face next, UK time it is expected to start and how to watch the final US Open match on TV and live stream all the way from Flushing Meadows in New York.

It will be the first Grand Slam final between teenagers since Martina Hingis vs Serena Williams in 1999, which was also at the US Open.
Fernandez, 19, has enjoyed an equally incredible tournament by beating former US Open champion Naomi Osaka in the third round, 16th seed Angelique Kerber in the last 16, 5th seed Elina Svitolina in the quarters and 2nd seed Sabalenka in the semi final.
