The final match of the 2021 US Open women’s singles tournament is officially here, featuring two of the most unlikely finalists – two teenage girls. It’s Leylah Fernández, who just turned 19, against Emma Raducanu, 18. Fernández entered the US Open at 73rd in the WTA singles rankings, while Raducanu came in 150th.
When the women’s draw was revealed on August 26, no one had these two penciled in as the last women standing. The talk was about who wasn’t there, as Americans Serena Williams, Venus Williams, and Sofia Kenin were all out. Fernández’s name was at the bottom of the box; Raducano, it wasn’t even on the list. Why? He had to finish qualifying for the main draw.
Now the two sensations of adolescence, both born in Canada (Fernández is from Laval, Que., And Raducanu was born in Toronto, but considers Britain his home), are on the brink of the first Grand Slam crown of his career. . It also marks the first meeting of two teens in the final since Serena Williams beat Martina Hingis in New York in 1999.
