The 18-year-old sensation decided to commemorate this historic feat by displaying her Nike attire at the tennis pantheon in Newport, Rhode Island.

The Tennis Hall of Fame tweeted: “A legendary run: preserved.

“Thank you, @EmmaRaducanu, for donating your memorable #USOpen outfit to the ITHF collection!”

Raducanu’s outfit joins thousands of tennis memorabilia pieces that date way back in the 1880s.

That includes kit worn by some of the sport’s biggest legends like Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King and Tracy Austin.

Raducanu will soon get to extend her legacy after climbing 128 places to 22nd spot in the world rankings.

The British No1 decided to compete in the Australian Open even though that means she will spend Christmas away from home.

Raducanu said: “Whatever needs to be done to be able to play the Australian I’ll do.

“It’s not even in my mind, I just want to be at the Australian Open, and want to compete there so whatever it takes to do, I’ll go.”
