After the British teenager’s stunning run at Wimbledon this summer, she has lit up Flushing Meadows in a similar fashion, winning three qualifying matches and taking four scalps in the main draw to reach the second week of the year’s final grand slam.
Raducanu’s most recent fourth-round victory was emphatic, thrashing American Shelby Rogers 6-2, 6-1, and she has benefitted from a less intense spotlight than on home turf.
Now the challenge steps up a level as Raducanu enters the final eight, taking on the recent winner of an Olympic gold medal, the Swiss 24-year-old Bencic.
Here is everything you need to know:
When is it and what time does it start?
The quarter-final between Raducanu and Bencic is yet to be officially scheduled but is likely to take place at around 5-7pm BST (12-2pm in New York) on Wednesday 8 September.

What has Raducanu said:
“I feel a lot more confident now. At Wimbledon I was absolutely loving it but I was so new and everything was so fresh, to have that experience in the bank I feel more relaxed on the court,” Raducanu said.
“I’m pretty motivated for any situation that I’m thrown into. You have to step on the court with the same belief - and I definitely do.”
