Emma Raducanu is taking the US Open by storm.

The 18-year-old downed Olympic gold medalist Belinda Bencic 6-3, 6-4 on Wednesday to reach her first Grand Slam semifinal. The straight-set win means that Raducanu has yet to lose a set in the entire tournament, having steamrolled the US Open competition so far.

She’s the second teenager to reach the US Open semifinals after 19-year-old Leylah Fernandez earned a spot on Tuesday.

She’s the first qualifier, male or female, to reach the US Open semifinals in the Open era. The Brit also joins Billie Jean King and Kim Clijsters as the only women outside of the WTA top 100 to reach the US Open semifinals.

She’ll face the winner of fourth-seeded Karolina Pliskova and 17th-seed Maria Sakkari in the semifinals.
