US Open Day 11 - Raducanu. Fernandez. WHAT IS HAPPENING?

The teenage dream will extend all the way to the US Open final after Leylah Fernandez and Emma Raducanu booked their places in Saturday's showpiece event. At the end of an extraordinary women's semi-final night, David and Matt try to convey what they saw and how they felt. How much was Aryna Sabalenka her own worst enemy? What did Fernandez do to cause Sabalenka's downfall? In what way did Raducanu neutralise Maria Sakkari's physical presence? And how did the Brit maintain her composure throughout the second set?

There's also a rundown of the records they're setting, lots of shock about surreal it all is, and a look ahead to the men's semi-finals on Friday.
