She's the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam event since 1968.
Emma Raducanu made history last night, becoming the first ever qualifier to win a Grand Slam event since the game turned professional in 1968.
The British 18 year old beat Leylah Fernandez in straight sets, 6-4, 6-3, to win the US Open in New York.
Raducanu didn't drop a single set in the entire tournament.
