British teenager, Emma Raducanu, made history in many ways by winning her first grand slam title on Saturday. Raducanu became the first British woman in 44 years to win a Grand Slam singles title. Her appearance in the final against 19-year-old Canadian, Leylah Fernandez, makes it the first major final between teenagers since the 1999 US Open when Serena Williams defeated Martina Hingis. After an hour and 51 minutes, the 18-year-old from Bromley overpowered Fernandez, winning 6-4 6-3 in the final. With her straight-set victory, Raducanu did not drop a set in the entire tournament.
