Emma Raducanu next match: When and who does Raducanu play next?

Emma Raducanu shocked the world by winning the US Open as a debutant qualifier and is set to contest her next match in October.

The 18-year-old burst onto the scene by reaching the Fourth Round of Wimbledon as a wildcard earlier this summer and emphatically proved that run was no flash in the pan.

Heading into the US Open as world number 150, Raducanu won three qualifying matches without dropping a set to secure her spot in the main draw.

At Flushing Meadows, she then swept aside Stefanie Voegele, Zhang Shuai, Sara Sorribes Tormo, Shelby Rogers, Belinda Bencic, and Maria Sakkari to reach the final, still without dropping a set.

Raducanu defeated Canada’s Leylah Fernandez 6-4, 6-3 in what was the first all-teenage women’s singles final since the 1999 US Open. She won the title without dropping a set, becoming the first woman to do so at the US Open since Serena Williams in 2014.

The British sensation was also the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam tournament and the first woman in the Open Era to win a major tournament in only her second appearance.

Now ranked world number 23, Raducanu has become a British sporting icon and all eyes will be on the youngster’s return to the court.

Raducanu is set to play her next match at the BNP Paribas Open at Indian Wells – which gets under way on Monday October 4.

The tournament, which is usually held in the spring, is one of the biggest on the WTA Tour and Raducanu may play her next match in the qualifiers.

Despite rocketing 127 places in the world rankings, Indian Wells’ main draw entry is based on rankings before the US Open, meaning Raducanu’s ranking was not high enough at the cut off point.

However, she is expected to receive a wildcard into the main draw, where current entrants include the likes of Ash Barty, Naomi Osaka, Aryna Sabalenka, Karolína Plíšková and Leylah Fernandez.

Emma Raducanu became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam in the Open Era after defeating Leylah Fernandez in straight sets to claim the 2021 US Open crown.

The 18-year-old completed the most remarkable of victories by seeing off fellow teenage sensation Fernandez 6-4, 6-3 at Flushing Meadows.

The first British female Slam champion since Virginia Wade at Wimbledon in 1977, Raducanu also became the youngest major winner since Maria Sharapova’s All England Club triumph in 2004.

Having only completed her A-levels a couple of months ago, the world number 150 will climb a whopping 127 places to 23rd in Monday’s updated WTA rankings.

Raducanu’s sensational triumph was also achieved without dropping a single set; making her the first player to do this at the US Open since Serena Williams seven years ago.

This was the first time in 22 years that two teenagers had contested the Ladies’ singles final at Flushing Meadows.

Raducanu had come through three qualifying rounds, before defeating Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic and 17th seed Maria Sakkari in the quarter and semi-finals respectively.

Meanwhile, world number 73 Fernandez was looking to become only the second Slam champion from Canada after Bianca Andreescu’s triumph here two years ago.

The 19-year-old enjoyed a brilliant run to the final; defeating former champions Naomi Osaka and Angelique Kerber, as well as fifth and second seeds Elina Svitolina and Aryna Sabalenka.

A tight opening set saw Fernandez immediately cancel out Raducanu’s break in the second game, before going with serve until the 10th.

It was here that the new British number one fashioned four set points on her opponent’s serve; drawing first blood at the fourth attempt with a blistering forehand.

Seeking to become the first woman to win a Slam in only her second main-draw appearance, Raducanu responded brilliantly to being broken in the third game of the second set.

Another thumping forehand winner then saw her crucially break in game six, before powering through her own service game to stand on the brink of victory at 5-2.

Fernandez dug deep; fending off two Championship points before Raducanu served for the chance to become only the fourth British female Slam winner after Wade, Ann Jones and Sue Barker.

The 18-year-old was forced to take a medical timeout at 30-40 behind after sustaining a nasty cut to her knee while attempting to return a powerful Fernandez forehand, much to the dismay of her opponent.

Nevertheless, she quickly regained her composure to rescue that break point, before a stunning ace secured the perfect ending to what has been a fairy-tale run in New York.

Raducanu becomes the third British player to triumph in the Big Apple during the Open Era; after Wade in 1968 and Andy Murray 44 years later.

Two remarkable teenagers will square off in the 2021 Women’s US Open Final on Saturday as Emma Raducanu takes on Leylah Fernandez.

Raducanu is now one step away to complete what would be arguably the greatest success in women’s tennis history. She is the first qualifier in history to reach a Grand Slam final and she has done that in style without dropping a single set.

The 18-year-old has already won nine matches at Flushing Meadows and dropped only 43 games. Prior to the US Open, Raducanu had only three pro titles under her belt (two W15s in 2018 and a W25 in India in 2019). Her biggest final came last month in Chicago where she fell short to Clara Tauson in three sets.

Raducanu had played against mediocre opponents in the first rounds, but her recent mesmerizing victories over Bencic and Sakkari proved how much of a formidable force she is.

Fernandez’s run to the 2021 US Open final is also one of the most impressive of all time. She has beaten three of the top five seeds en route to the final.

They have included Naomi Osaka, Elina Svitolina and Aryna Sabalenka, as well as a former world number one – Angelique Kerber.

She has spent more hours on the pitch than Raducanu, which is understandable given the quality of the opponents she faced. Her last four matches have all gone the distance and has played 5 tiebreakers in six matches overall.

Only two Canadian women have ever played in a Grand Slam final in the Open Era. Eugenie Bouchard lost to Petra Kvitova at 2014 Wimbledon, while Bianca Andreescu defeated Serena Williams at the 2019 US Open.

It should be a close contest between these two talented players, so our prediction is Over 2.5 Sets at odds of 69/50 with Bet365.

Raducanu vs Fernandez is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 9pm BST.

Emma Raducanu’s fairytale run in New York continued as she booked her place in the US Open final with a straight-sets victory over Maria Sakkari.

The 18-year-old became the first qualifier to reach a Slam final following a dominant 6-1, 6-4 success over the 17th seed on Ashe.

Appearing in the main draw of a Slam for only the second time, Raducanu is yet to drop a set in nine matches at Flushing Meadows, where the last British female finalist was Virginia Wade back in 1968.

The teen is set to become the new British number one next week, having also seen off Olympic gold medallist Belinda Bencic in the quarter-finals.

She built on that momentum with a blistering start against Sakkari, who was aiming to become the first Ladies finalist from Greece at a Slam.

Raducanu capitalised on four double faults from her opponent, breaking twice as she wrapped up the first set in just 36 minutes.

That was only the second set dropped by Sakkari, who was appearing in her second Slam semi-final having also appeared at this stage of the French Open in June.

The 26-year-old had been a point away from reaching the Roland Garros showpiece against eventual champion Barbora Krejcikova.

However, her dwindling hopes of getting that opportunity this time around were continually dented by hugely impressive play from Raducanu, who broke again in game three.

The set then went with serve as the world number 150 demonstrated nerves of steel on the biggest stage to set up an all-teenage final with Leylah Fernandez, who edged out second seed Aryna Sabalenka 7-6, 4-6, 6-4.

Like Raducanu, world number 74 Fernandez has enjoyed an impressive maiden fortnight in the Big Apple; taking out former champions Naomi Osaka and Angelique Kerber prior to today, along with fifth seed Elina Svitolina.

Sabalenka arrived in her second successive Slam semi-final boasting an 18-2 record against players ranked outside the top 50 in 2021.

The second seed made a strong start by dropping just two points and breaking her opponent on the way to a 3-0 lead, but Fernandez responded in game seven before dominating the tie-break 7-3 to draw first blood.

Sabalenka made 52 unforced errors throughout the contest and demonstrated her frustration when smashing her racket at 3-2 down in the second set.

Nevertheless, the Belarusian regained her composure by winning four of the next five games to ensure the contest went to a decider.

But despite immediately cancelling out a Fernandez break to level at 4-4, the mistakes continued to plague Sabalenka.

Indeed, a double fault and forehand error during her final service game was pounced on by the 19-year-old, who becomes the second Canadian finalist at Flushing Meadows in three years after 2019 champion Bianca Andreescu.

US Open 2021 Results

Thursday September 9

Semi-Finals

Arthur Ashe Stadium
Aryna Sabalenka (2) 6-7, 6-4, 4-6 Leylah Fernandez
Emma Raducanu 6-1, 6-4 Maria Sakkari

Emerging star Emma Raducanu aims to continue her historic run at the 2021 US Open when she faces Maria Sakkari in the Semi-Finals on Thursday.

The 18-year-old has made headlines around the world through her exploits in her debut campaign at Flushing Meadows and will be determined for the fairy-tale in New York not to end one step short of the final.

In only her fourth tour-level event, Raducanu has become the first qualifier to reach the Semi-Finals of the US Open and has remarkably done so without dropping a single set.

Now British number one, Raducanu has won 14 of her last 16 matches on hard courts and is six games unbeaten against top 50 ranked opposition.

The teenager has shown maturity beyond her years to defeat Stefanie Vögele, Zhang Shuai, Sara Sorribes Tormo, Shelby Rogers and Belinda Bencic en route to the Semi-Final stage.

She now faces another formidable test against world number 18 Sakkari – making her second appearance in a Grand Slam Semi-Final this season.

The Greek star was denied by Barbora Krejčíková in an epic tie break at Roland Garros and has once again underlined her calibre in majors by overcoming the likes of Petra Kvitova, Bianca Andreescu and Karolina Pliskova so far here.

Sakkari is renowned for her aggressive style of play, centered around her strong serve and powerful ground strokes and served the sixth most aces of any WTA player last year.

Raducanu may be yet to drop a set but can expect a hugely tough test in the Arthur Ashe Stadium, and we’re opting for all three sets to be contested at 6/4 with Bet365.

Raducanu vs Sakkari is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 1.30am BST.

Emma Raducanu became the first qualifier to reach the US Open semi-finals after a straight-sets victory over Olympic champion Belinda Bencic at Flushing Meadows on Wednesday.

The British teenager continued her remarkable run in New York, where she has now won 16 consecutive sets without reply following her 6-3, 6-4 success.

The world number 150 also became the lowest-ranked player to reach the last four of the season’s final Slam since Kim Clijsters in 2009.

The youngest British quarter-finalist in the Big Apple for over 60 years, Raducanu arrived having dropped just 15 games – the fewest in the first four rounds since Serena Williams in 2013.

But the 18-year-old looked nervous during the early stages, with 11th seed Bencic breaking to 15 in the opening game on the way to a 3-1 lead.

Nevertheless, she hit back with two breaks as she won the next five games to land the opening set.

That set was also the first dropped by Bencic, who was eyeing a second straight semi-final at this event and 14th win from 15 matches.

But an untimely double fault saw the Swiss broken in the fifth by Raducanu, who subsequently held to ensure her fairytale in New York lived on.

Also through to the semi-finals in the men’s draw is Alexander Zverev after the Olympic gold medallist saw off Lloyd Harris in straight sets 7-6, 6-3, 6-4.

The 2020 runner-up survived a break in the eighth game of a tight opening set, responding immediately before prevailing 8-6 in the tie-break.

Harris was making his first appearance at this stage of a Slam having taken out three seeds in Karen Khachanov, Denis Shapovalov and Reilly Opelka.

But the South African never looked like adding Zverev to his list of scalps thereon.

An early break in the second set paved the way for the fourth seed to double his lead and, though pegged back to 4-3 from 4-0 up in the next, he held his nerve to secure a 16th straight victory.

Emma Raducanu steps up her debut US Open quest with a clash against Shuai Zhang in the Second Round on Thursday.

Teenage sensation Raducanu has already proven that her landmark run at Wimbledon was no flash in the pan, having backed up her debut qualification for the main draw at Flushing Meadows with a superb First Round display.

The 18-year-old swept aside Switzerland’s Stefanie Vogele 6-2, 6-3 despite being a break down in each set and is now the only Briton remaining in the women’s draw.

Raducanu reached the Fourth Round as a wildcard at Wimbledon in July but is here on merit and making a rapid rise up the world rankings.

She now looks to avenge her defeat to China’s Zhang in San Jose last month, with the world number 49 having defeated Hailey Baptiste 6-3, 6-4 in her opener.

Two-time WTA event winner Zhang was a quarter-finalist at Wimbledon in 2019 and the Australian Open in 2016.

The 32-year-old has vast experience in major tournaments, but faces a young opponent riding the crest of a wave and showing no signs of fear against top opposition.

We expect a close-run contest on Court Ten and are opting for over 21.5 total games.

Raducanu v Zhang is available to watch via a live stream on desktop, mobile or tablet devices from approximately 5pm BST.
