The US Open women’s final is perhaps the most surprising Grand Slam final in tennis history, featuring two unranked teenage girls, the first of whom qualified to make a final in the Open era.

Leylah Fernandez will take on Emma Raducanu, and the teens – Fernandez turned 19 this week and Raducanu is 18 – were the thrills of a US Open that started without many of tennis’s most important stars. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena and Venus Williams were forced to skip the tournament due to injuries. Fernandez, from Canada, and Raducanu, from Great Britain, have more than filled the void. Their tennis and contagious personalities were nothing but shows.

Saturday, September 11, 4 p.m. EST. On ESPN and streamed on the ESPN app. In Canada on TSN and streaming on the TSN app.

Ranked 150th, Raducanu had to compete in the US Open qualifying rounds a week before the start of the main tournament in order to secure her place. Raducanu won three matches to reach the main draw, followed by six more matches to reach the final, becoming the first player in history to reach a major final as a qualifier.

While many players would look haggard after nine games in a tournament, Raducanu looks fit and happy, helped by his incredible efficiency on the pitch. Raducanu have won all nine of their straight sets, never needing a tiebreaker so much in any of the 18 sets. In a single set, in the second round of qualifying against Mariam Bolkvadze, her opponent reached five games. Bolkvadze was leading with Raducanu serving at 4-5, 0-30, two points from the second set, only for Raducanu to have 12 consecutive points to end the game.

Remarkably, despite three more matches, Raducanu spent less time on the pitch than Fernandez at this US Open, totaling 11 hours and 34 minutes in nine matches, compared to 12 hours and 45 minutes for Fernandez in six matches.

As Raducanu rolled, Fernandez fought back, beating some of the game’s toughest players in straight-set battles. After winning her first two games against the previous quarter-finals Ana Konjuh and Kaia Kanepi, Fernandez knocked out defending champion Naomi Osaka in straight sets in the third round. Osaka, the third seed, served for the game at 6-5 in the second set, but Fernandez broke and fled with the tiebreaker in the second set as Osaka unraveled.

In the fourth round, Fernandez beat Angelique Kerber, the champion of the US Open 2016, in three sets. In the quarterfinals, Fernandez defeated fifth seed Elina Svitolina in a tiebreaker in the third set. In the semifinals, Fernandez beat second seed Aryna Sabalenka in three sets.

“It helped me open my eyes to the fact that I have no limit to my potential,” Fernandez said of his race. “I can play three sets against these players, I can play against these top players and I can win against these top players.”

Although Fernandez paid a higher physical price to reach the final, she will enter it much more tested in combat. She proved what she can do deep in a third set of an important game, while Raducanu’s response in these situations remains largely unknown.
