British tennis sensation Emma Raducanu accomplished one of the greatest sporting achievements of all time – winning the US Open at just 18 years old.

Not only did she become the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Virginia Wade – 44 years ago, she did it all without dropping a single set. Raducanu is the first qualifier – male or female – to win a major in the Open Era. 

Raducuanu’s incredible run at Wimbledon over the summer and her US Open win is a major sporting achievement and an important moment for not only women’s tennis or British tennis … but tennis and sport as a whole. 

Despite the milestones reached by the teenager, the media’s coverage ranged from racialisation and her heritage, how much money she is reportedly set to make, Brexit and multiculturalism in the UK.
