British sensation Emma Raducanu thrashed world number 41 Sara Sorribes Tormo 6-0 6-1 to reach the fourth round of the US Open.

The 18-year-old told Prime Video: ‘I was playing very well, I know she [Tormo] is a tough opponent, she doesn’t make mistakes so I had to work so hard.

‘There was some really long deuce games that could’ve gone either way. I’m so happy I could maintain it and get the win.

‘For this one I knew I had to hit through her or hit the corners. I tried to take the game to her and luckily I hit more winners than errors today.

‘I’ve got a great team around me, we’re sticking to the same routine. I never thought I’d be here but I’m so excited and I’ll get straight back to it tomorrow.

‘Honestly the crowd is so amazing, I want to thank the fans. They helped me through so many moments.’
