Continuing a streak started in the qualifying draw, Emma Raducanu won her 19th consecutive set. US Open in style, but it was a battle like none before for her.

The 18-year-old Briton secured a double set point with her opponent Leylah Fernandez serving at 4-5, hitting an acute-angled cross backhand return winner after a slow second serve from Fernandez.

Raducanu missed his first set point opportunity by pushing a long backhand, and couldn’t make a difficult backhand lob on the run on his second opportunity.

Raducanu got a third set point when Fernandez missed a long forehand but missed his backhand return into the net.

She got a fourth set point chance by going around her backhand and landing a strong backhand forehand that Fernandez couldn’t line up with her forehand. The fourth time was the charm of Raducanu, who leaned forward to throw a winning forehand across the line in the open court, ending the set after 58 minutes.

Raducanu turned to the crowd and raised his arms, encouraging them to amplify their already numerous applause for the demonstration they saw of the two teenagers today.

Fernandez left the field after the set for a break; Raducanu stayed in his place and enjoyed some snacks.
