  1. Here's to you, Emma...

    Emma Raducanu

    After a remarkable evening, it is time to bring this live text to a close.

    Emma Raducanu, the 18-year-old who began her campaign in qualifying as the world number 150, is the US Open champion having stormed through the tournament without dropping a set.

    The teenager is the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since Virginia Wade's Wimbledon triumph in 1977, some 44 years ago. Come Monday she will be the new British number one.

    She is also the first qualifier, man or woman, to ever win a Grand Slam.

    It has been a life-changing few weeks for the star, who was born in Canada to a Romanian dad and Chinese mum and moved to Britain at the age of two. How lucky we are to call her our own.

    You can keep across all the reaction the Raducanu's remarkable victory on the BBC Sport website and why not start by checking out Amy Lofthouse's report here, see how the Queen led the celebratory messages or even check out Raducanu's best shots from the final below.

    Until next time...

    I have never seen anything like that, and I am just as sure I will never seen anything like that again.

  4. Post update

    Think we might see these two battling it out at many Grand Slams in the future. Just 18 and 19 years old...

    As well as the US Open trophy, Emma Raducanu will take home a winner's cheque of $2.5m - or £1.8m. Not bad for an 18-year-old who three months ago had never played a Grand Slam.

    Laura Robson

    Former British number one on BBC Radio 5 Live

    It is going to be interesting to see what route she wants to go, whether she wants to take advantage of this huge confidence she has got at the moment.

  7. 'Highest level I have seen for some time'

    Laura Robson

    Former British number one on BBC Radio 5 Live

    They both absolutely delivered. That is the highest level of women's tennis I have seen in a final in quite some time.

  8. History maker, record breaker

    With this victory, Raducanu becomes:

    • The first British female winner at Flushing Meadows since Virginia Wade in 1968
    • The first qualifier in the Open era to win a Slam
    • The youngest women's Slam champion since Maria Sharapova at Wimbledon in 2004
    • The youngest Briton to win a Grand Slam title
    • The first woman to win the US Open without dropping a set since Serena Williams in 2014

    She will also take home £1.8m in prize money, rise to 23 in the world rankings and will become the British number one on Monday.
