Emma Raducanu: US Open winner could become Britain’s first billion-dollar sport star

The Guardian says most fledging British stars spend years trying to crack America. Emma Raducanu did it in three giddy weeks. And such was the skill and breathtaking scale of her first grand slam victory – which ended with her blitzing an ace before collapsing to the floor and rubbing her eyes, as if to make sure she was not in some impossible dream – it felt entirely natural to immediately speculate where it ranked in the pantheon of the nation’s great sporting triumphs.

High, for sure. Perhaps even highest of all. Certainly for an individual.

After all, never in tennis history has anyone fought through three qualifying rounds of a grand slam before winning the entire tournament, let alone an 18-year-old who the bookies rated as a 400-1 outsider. What’s more, she did it without dropping a set. If a young writer dared pitch such a script to Hollywood, it would have been fastballed into the nearest trashcan.
