While both players in that match were something of a known quantity – Hingis was already world no.1 – both of today’s finalists’ trailblazing journeys to today’s clash has come as something of a bolt out of the blue.
Britain’s Emma Raducanu had to go through the qualifying stage on her incredible route to this showdown, yet has yet to lose a set so far in the tournament.
