Emma Raducanu is making history. The one that yesterday had Leylah Fernández on the front page. With only 18 years and 9 months, he passed the preliminary phase and reached the semifinals of the US Open.
She beat a Belinda Bencic 6-3 and 6-4 who started very well, but ended up despairing due to the lack of errors and enormous successes of her young rival.
The British did it without giving up sets and became the youngest tennis player in this instance of the US Open since Maria Sharapova (18 years and 4 months) in 2005.
In addition, she is the third woman with a ranking outside the Top 100 to be among the top four in the tournament and she is the first to reach the semifinals at Flushing Meadows in her first appearance in 24 years. The last time that happened was in 1997 at the hands of Venus Williams.
