Emma Raducanu has become the first British woman in 44 years to win a Grand Slam singles title.
The 18-year-old overpowered Leylah Fernandez, a 19-year-old from Canada — winning 6-4 6-3 in the US Open final.
Each rally between Raducanu and Fernandez was hard fought, with both women reading each other’s games in a way their previous opponents didn’t manage to do.
The last British woman to hoist a major tennis trophy was Virginia Wade at Wimbledon in 1977.
But each round she’s progressed through in New York has seen the new British No.1 pocket a hefty sum of cash.
Raducanu’s sensational win over Fernandez in Saturday’s final has seen her pocket a cool $2.5m (£1.8m).
The total prize pool for the US Open this year has been set at a record $57.5m (£41.4m) – $300,000 (£216,000) more than the previous high in 2019.
