His name will always be remembered because what he has achieved this Saturday for tennis in the United Kingdom and the world is already historic.

Emma Raducanu, 18, defeated this Saturday at the US Open, in New York, the Canadian teenager Leylah Fernández, 6-4 6-3, in an exciting and high-quality final.

Although there are several qualities that led her to victory, it is noteworthy that this tennis player was located in position 150 of the world ranking and that in order to reach the US Open she had to enter through previous qualifiers, not automatically, as tennis players do in the positions 1 to 60 of the world ranking.

In other words, Raducanu is the first tennis player in history, between men and women, who enters through the previous qualifiers and wins one of the four Grand Slam tournaments.
