On the hard-courts of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (Flushing Meadows, New York), the matches of the highly anticipated US Open 2021 are being played, the last Grand Slam of the season, during which there will be the absences of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams.
Emma Raducanu is the first qualifier in the history of the US Open to reach the final without losing a set and giving up only 27 games in all, 43 with the three qualifying rounds. The young British tennis player beat Maria Sakkari in straight sets, with the final score of 6-1 6-4, showing incredible tennis in the moments of pressure of the match.
Pressure that mentally crumbled her Greek opponent's. In the final of the new York Slam, Raducanu will meet her Canadian contemporary Leylah Fernandez, in what will be the coolest and most incredible challenge seen in recent years.
