Emma’s match will go down in history as the tennis sensation, who achieved her A-levels earlier this year, became the first Briton to win a major since Virginia Wade at Wimbledon in 1977 and is the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam, in the men’s or women’s game.
She claimed a check for £1.8 million after beating fellow teenager Leylah Fernandez – more than her entire career gain to date – and rose in the rankings from 150 to 23.
