    Raducanu US Open Win, the Biggest Title of Her Career

    When Raducanu won the US Open 2021, she became not only the first unseeded player to win the coveted title but also marked the biggest Title of Her Career: British qualifier Emma Raducanu beat Canada’s Leylah Fernandez 6-4 6-3 in a battle of two unseeded teenagers to win the U.S. Open women’s title on Saturday.

    She took home $2.5m (18.3 Cr) in prize money, the highest paycheque won by any teenager ever.

    After her win, Raducanu will rise to 23 in the world rankings and will become the British number one on Monday.

    Raducanu will be remembered forever being the first unseeded player to be crowned champion at the US Open 2021

    The 150th-ranked Raducanu is the first-ever qualifier to win one of the four majors and the 18-year-old also became the first British woman in 44 years to win a Grand Slam title.

    The first Grand Slam final — men or women — to be contested by two unseeded players was an improbable matchup that no one could have predicted, featuring 150th-ranked qualifier Raducanu and little-known Fernandez ranked 73rd.

    All the more remarkable was that Raducanu’s march to the title required 10 matches, including three wins in qualifying, and she did it without dropping a single set along the way.
