US Open 2021 LIVE: 18-year-old Emma Raducanu seals QF berth with epic straight sets win
Raducanu, ranked 150th in the world, did not have the most auspicious of starts, conceding the first two games in set 1 to Rogers. However, the 18-year-old flicked a switch and won 11 games on the bounce to get on course for a dominating win. She will now face off against Swiss ace and Tokyo Olympics gold medallist Belinda Bencic in the quarter-finals.
Speaking after her win, Raducanu said, “It feels absolutely amazing to be here at the US Open … I’m so happy to have come through and overcome some of the nerves at the beginning”.

Shelby Rogers, on the other hand, stunned the World No.1 Ash Barty in her pursuit of the US Open title. She had earlier defeated the likes of Sorana Cirstea and Madison Brengle. The 28-year-old has previously made it to the Quarterfinals of the 2020 US Open.
“She’s fearless, she’s playing very well and she’s inspired,” said Rogers, who earned the biggest win of her career by beating Barty. “It’s going to be a battle, I’m ready for it.”
