Emma Raducanu is the US Open champion. At 18, on just her second Grand Slam appearance, she qualified and went all the way to the title without dropping a set. There's never been anything else like it in tennis.

At the end of an incredible night, Catherine and Matt react to her 6-4 6-3 win over Leylah Fernandez, the high-quality tennis on display, the feeling of joy it elicited, the extraordinary post-match speech by Fernandez, and why it's a moment beyond compare.

Looking ahead to the men's final, is Daniil Medvedev ready to win his first major title? And will The Grand Slam being on the line make Novak Djokovic unstoppable?

We also run through all the results and stories from the doubles and wheelchair events.
