That’s incredible/ridiculous.

She’s got a chance… a great chance… but no way should she be favourite. Her first ever semi, she began the tournament outside the top 100.

She looks the real deal though.

I really enjoy watching her play. She's so aggressive and attacks the ball fiercely. Obviously Serena had immense power but Raducanu has a ferocity that I've not noticed in the women's game before

Boom.

Epic stuff.

First ever qualifier to reach a grand slam final. And she's not dropped a set doing it. Wow.

Should be a good final. 2 really young women. Fernandez also a teenager.

Bookies will have her favourite purely to shorten the odds and hope they don't lose too much money.

Should be a good bit of Saturday night TV though.

Hard to call. They both hit is so hard and accurately. Different level.

Raducanu's first serve is a bit wobbly. Might make the difference.

Raducanu is so brave, definitely banished the nerves she suffered earlier this year

Fernández is so gutsy, chasing everything, our lass has the advantage of height. Both make the court so small. Ridiculous at times from both.

Mad that they are only in their teens. Some of the play from both is the sort of high level stuff you would expect to be coming from seasoned world class players.
