EMMA RADUCANU is into the US Open women’s final at the age of just 18 years old.
And if she triumphs at Flushing Meadows she will become a Grand Slam champion at a younger age than even Rafael Nadal.

Standing in her way now is another teen sensation – 19-year-old Leylah Fernandez.
And Fernandez has already shown she can be just as good as Raducanu at overcoming the odds at the Brit.
The Canadian has already dispensed with Naomi Osaka, Angelique Kerber, Elina Svitolina and Aryna Sabalenka to reach this stage.
Both players are currently ranked outside the world’s top 100 ahead of a final nobody would have predicted when the tournament began two weeks ago.
