Teenage tennis sensation Emma Raducanu has won through to the final 16 at the Wimbledon Championships after a straight sets victory in the third round.

The 18-year-old’s fairytale debut tournament continued with a stunning triumph over world number 45 Sorana Cirstea on Court One.

Raducanu, who is waiting for her A-Level results, has quickly become the story of the Championships.

Having only played one Women’s Tennis Association Tour level match before, she showed she belonged on the main stage with a 6-3 7-5 victory.

Raducanu’s performance caught the eye of Liam Gallagher.

The musician tweeted: “Emma Raducanu BIBLICAL.”
