“Absolutely Emm-Ense”; “Totally Rad” and the “Queen of New York” – the headline writers shower praise on Emma Raducanu.
It was one of “sport’s great triumphs,” says the Sunday Telegraph, before listing her achievements.
“First qualifier to win a major title, the first to win on their second main draw appearance, the first British women’s champion for 44 years and the youngest for more than 60,” the paper says.

The change, according to the Mail, will be brought in before half term next month, slashing the cost of family holidays by hundreds of pounds.
The Sun says the measure would allow the travel industry to compete with EU countries which no longer have the tests.
