VIDEO: Fernandez gives tearful interview after US Open final defeat with message of support on 9/11 anniversary

Leylah Fernandez may have lost the all-teenage US Open final to Emma Raducanu but fans were given a potential glimpse at a match which could be a feature of the future of Women's tennis.

Fernandez produced a brilliant run from start to finish at Flushing Meadows to continue her breakout and after losing to the British qualifier was understandably upset.

Giving a tearful interview, she thanked her family before sending a message of support to those affected by the 9/11 terror attacks on the 20th anniversary.

“I hope I can be as strong and resilient as New York has been the past 20 years," she said.
