Emma Raducanu has become the first person to 'bagel' tennis icon Serena Williams since her compatriot, Johanna Konta, in 2018. The Brit powered past her American opponent at the Cincinnati Open and won the second set 6-0, blitzing soon-to-retire Williams in rare fashion.

Williams had the benefit of raucous home support as they roared her on with just weeks left until she is expected to retire. The 40-year-old recently suggested that she will 'evolve' away from tennis after the US Open, which begins in less than two weeks.

Her warm-up against Raducanu at the Cincinnati Open didn't go to plan as the Brit romped to victory in just over an hour. Having taken the first set 6-4, she raced through the second 6-0 to 'bagel' Williams for the first time in four years.

Fellow Brit Konta was the last player to shut Williams out of a set when she did so at the San Jose Classic in 2018.
