It means a lot to be here in this situation. I wanted obviously to be playing Grand Slams, but I didn't know how soon that would be. To be in a Grand Slam final at this stage of my career, I have no words, Emma Raducanu, via statement.
Fernandez described her time
at the U.S. Open as "magical.".
I think one word that really
stuck to me is 'magical'
because not only is my
run really good but
also the way I'm
playing right now, Leylah Fernandez, via statement.
I'm just having fun,
I'm trying to produce
something for the
crowd to enjoy.
I'm glad that whatever
I'm doing on court,
the fans are loving it
and I'm loving it, too.
We'll say it's magical, Leylah Fernandez, via statement
