Emma Raducanu vs Zhang Shuai LIVE streaming in US Open 2021: British teen sensation Emma Raducanu clinched a sensational victory over China’s Zhang Shuai to seal progression into round 3 of the US Open 2021. The 18-year-old played a nearly flawless game, closing out the first set in just 31 minutes, 6-2. She followed it up with yet another set of control to clinch the tie and a place in round 3 of the US Open.

Ranked 150 in the world, Raducanu put a lot of pressure on Zhang, forcing her to the baseline with some aggressive strokeplay. The Chinese ranked 49th in the world, was forced into some early mistakes and her opponent cashed on it with relative ease, powering through to a straight-sets win.

Should Raducanu advance to fourth-round play, she’ll likely collide with Ashley Barty. Playing concurrently, the No. 1 seed ended a different teenager’s US Open run, beating 18-year-old Clara Tauson, 6-1, 7-5. Zhang will play on, teaming up with Samantha Stosur for a run at the 2021 US Open women’s doubles title. The No. 14 pair here were victorious at this summer’s Western & Southern Open in Cincinnati.

Raducanu is coached by Nigel Sears and was born in Toronto. Raducanu moved to Bromley, south of London, at the age of two and started playing tennis at aged five. She is a member of the LTA’s Pro Scholarship Programme, providing support – including physio, wellbeing, medical, financial, and access to the National Tennis Centre – to the best 16-24-year-old players in Britain.

The youngster began in the sport at age five, but until her A-Levels in maths and economics were safely completed in April, education was her chief focus – she attended the same school as Britain’s 200m world champion Dina Asher-Smith.

Meanwhile, she accumulated three ITF titles, while dabbling in a spot of motocross and go-karting in her downtime. Before Wimbledon, her season’s earnings were barely in four figures sterling. Notably, the 18-year-old and the lowest-ranked player had made it to the fourth round of Wimbledon since 1959.
