When we talk about athletes that have yet to drop a set past the Round of 16 in a Grand Slam tennis tournament, we normally talk about Novak Djokovic. Not this time, though, as Djkovic's given up sets while the 18-year-old qualifier Emma Raducanu has not.
Raducanu just dispatched Shelby Rogers (6-2, 6-1), to make it to the quarterfinals. And in those first four rounds, she performed fantastically, only giving up 15 games. But she's not letting this success get to her head, calling the score lines "irrelevant."
That said, Belinda Bencic (the 11th seed) is expected to probably take the win, however difficult that may prove to be. Throughout the tournament, Bencic's had an air of casual confidence, with none of her opponents providing a real test. She also won in straight sets in the last round (7(14)-6(12), 6-3) over Iga Świątek.

So we tune in to see if the youngest British player to ever reach the quarter-finals at the US Open can shock the world again. The US Open has already given us several of these moments, with Raducanu's most recent opponent beating Ash Barty in an upset, and Leylah Annie Fernandez knocking Naomi Osaka out early.
