British teenager Emma Raducanu, 18, becomes the first qualifier in HISTORY to reach a Grand Slam final as she blows away her opponent Maria Sakkari at US Open to guarantee a $1.25m payday

The Sun: British teenage tennis sensation Emma Raducanu made history today by ruthlessly winning her US Open semi-final in straight sets, securing a place in her first major final and a cheque for a minimum of $1.25million (£900,000).

Boris Johnson and stars including Liam Gallagher and Piers Morgan took to social media to praise the 18-year-old from Kent, who is the first ever qualifier into a Grand Slam final after another performance of extraordinary poise saw her defeat seventeenth seed Maria Sakkari 6-1, 6-4 in just 84 minutes.

Just a month after getting As and A*s in her A-levels from her grammar school in Orpington, Miss Raducanu will be one half of the first all-teenage championship match at a Major in 22 years when she meets world No 73 Leylah Fernandez, the 19 year-old Canadian, on Saturday night from 9pm UK time.
