It’s the teens’ battle in New York as Britain’s Emma Raducanu takes on Leylah Fernandez in the US Open final.
Raducanu, 18, beat Greece’s 17th seed Maria Sakkari in the semifinal at Flushing Meadow, winning 6-1, 6-4, while Canada’s Fernandez, 19, defeated Aryna Sabalenka.
By winning his semi-final, Raducanu became the first qualifier – male or female – to reach the final of a Grand Slam event.
She hasn’t dropped a set and is also £ 900,000 richer, but there is a £ 1.8million prize up for grabs on Saturday night.
When is the final?
The game is scheduled to take place at 9 p.m. (BST) on Saturday, September 11.
How can I watch it?
The Battle of the Teens will be broadcast live on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
Who did they beat?
Fernandez recorded a few surprises en route to the final, beating defending champion Naomi Osaka, No.16 Angelique Kerber and No.5 Elina Svitolina.
Raducanu defeated Zhang Shuai, Shelby Rogers and Belinda Bencic.
Have they ever played against each other?
Yes. The two met in the second round of the Wimbledon Junior tournament in 2018, with Raducanu winning 6-2, 6-4.
“I’m sure it will be hugely different from the last time we met,” Raducanu said of the prospect of facing Fernandez. “But we both play good tennis so it will be a good game.”
