US Open Women's Tennis : Britain's Raducanu Storms To U.S. Open Title

Emma Raducanu ended britain's 44-year wait for a women's grand slam singles champion as she beat Leylah Fernandez to win the US Open Tennis title in the most thrilling style.

The 18-year-old ended her scarcely believable run in New York with a 6-4 and 6-3 win over her 19-year-old Canadian opponent in a high-quality final.

Raducanu threw herself to the floor in disbelief as she fired down an ace to conclude what has been the most remarkable journey.

Raducanu was cheered on by an emotional Virginia wade, who was the last British Woman to win a major trophy at Wimbledon in 1977.
