Emma Raducanu will be aiming to become the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title in 44 years when she takes on fellow teenage fellow Leylah Fernandez in the US Open women’s final in New York on Saturday.

US correspondent Jamie Johnson explains the hype surrounding the two young stars – Raducanu in particular – and speaks to fans at the tennis center in Flushing Meadows, Queens, to find out who they’re cheering for.
