Emma Raducanu’s US Open Final against fellow teenager Leylah Fernandez will be shown for free in the UK on Saturday evening.

She will battle it out in the hope to become the first British woman to win a Grand Slam in 44 years.

Raducanu captured the hearts of everyone with her performance in New York after a fairytale summer as she reached the fourth round at Wimbledon.

The historic clash will be shown on Prime Video and Channel 4 at 9pm.

Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service has had exclusive broadcast rights in this country for the final grand slam of the year.

In a deal reported to be worth seven figures, Channel 4 will also show the match.

All fees from the Channel 4 agreement will be reinvested into British women’s tennis to support the next generation of female British talent.

Coverage of the game will begin on Prime Video at 8pm BST with pre-match analysis from Greg Rusedski, Daniela Hantuchova and Anne Keothavong in the Prime Video Studio.

Alex Green, managing director of Prime Video Sport Europe, said: “Emma’s journey from qualification through to the US Open final at the age of 18 is a truly magical story for British sport and we think it’s important that we extend our coverage to as many people as possible to support her in this historic moment for women’s tennis.

“Young tennis talent such as Emma need the right support to become the stars we see today and we’re delighted to be able to commit even more investment to the next generation of women’s tennis in the UK.”

Channel 4’s chief content officer Ian Katz said: “Emma’s meteoric rise to secure a place in the US Open final is just sensational.

“We’re glad to have worked with Prime Video and pulled out all the stops to get it on air and I’m sure viewers will be thrilled at the prospect of watching Emma in this grand slam final.”
