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.”
