The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “‘I didn’t expect to be here’: Emma Raducanu through to US Open semi-final” – below is their description.

The remarkable US Open run by Emma Raducanu was so unexpected that her flight home had been booked for more than a week ago.

On Wednesday night, after stunning the tennis world by reaching the semi finals with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over Olympic champion Belinda Bencic, she said the calendar reshuffle was “a nice problem to have” and she’d like to stick around in New York just a bit longer.

The 18-year-old is the youngest Briton to reach the final four at this tournament in more than 60 years and has not dropped a set in eight matches.
