On the hard-courts of the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center (Flushing Meadows, New York), the matches of the highly anticipated US Open 2021 are being played, the last Grand Slam of the season, during which there will be the absences of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams.
Leylah Annie Fernandez is the first finalist of the US Open 2021. The very young Canadian defeated Aryna Sabalenka in three sets, with the final score of 7-6 (4) 4-6 6-4, showing a skilful management of pressure, playing with a very effective tennis, but also very intelligent in the clutch moments of the challenge.
Leylah took her third win against a top 5 in this tournament and became the youngest Grand Slam finalist since Maria Sharapova won Wimbledon in 2004. In the final of the new York Slam, Fernandez she will meet her British contemporary Emma Raducanu, in what will be the coolest and most incredible challenge seen in recent years.
