British teenager Emma Raducanu has sailed to victory over Sara Sorribes Tormo to reach the fourth round of the US Open.

The 18-year-old has now matched her breakthrough run at Wimbledon in the biggest win by ranking of her career so far.

Raducanu raced to a sensational 6-0 6-1 win over the world number 41.

The teenager now has a real shot of making the last eight of the tournament as she takes on American Shelby Rogers, who dumped out world number one Ash Barty on Saturday.

Rogers is vastly experienced but inconsistent, and if Raducanu produces anything like the tennis she showed against Sorribes Tormo the Briton has no reason to fear anyone.

The Kent teenager shot to fame by reaching Wimbledon’s fourth round in July, in a stunning first grand slam showing.

In the US Open so far she's not dropped a set across six matches in qualifying and the main draw.

Her latest victory is her seventh win from nine matches against players inside three figures.

After Saturday's match, the teenager told Amazon Prime: “I was playing very well and I know Sara’s an extremely tough opponent. She doesn’t make a mistake so you have to be on your game every single point.

“I had to work so hard and there were some really, really long deuce games that could have gone either way so I’m just really happy that I managed to maintain and stay on it and win in the end.”

The teenager seems unaffected by the whirlwind around her, and she said: “I’ve got a great team around me, a great team here so we’re just sticking to the same routines.

“It’s been two weeks in New York now and into the third week. I never thought I’d be here but I’m just so, so excited.”
