Emma Raducanu has donated her outfit from her US Open campaign to the Tennis Hall of Fame in the US.

The 18-year-old became the first qualifier to win a Grand Slam after defeating Canada’s Leylah Fernandez in the final.

Since the win she has climbed 128 places to 22nd spot in the world rankings.

The uniform will be on display at the Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island.

‘A legendary run: preserved,’ the Tennis Hall of Fame tweeted on Monday.

‘Thank you, @EmmaRaducanu, for donating your memorable #USOpen outfit to the ITHF collection!’ 

The Hall of fame is home to thousands of pieces of tennis memorabilia, including dresses from Martina Navratilova, Billie Jean King and Tracy Austin.

There are also rackets on display used by many greats of the game from Fred Perry to Roger Federer.
