Emma Raducanu is definitely the woman of the moment after becoming the first British woman to win a Grand Slam since Virginia Wade at Wimbledon 44 years ago.
It's all the more impressive when you learn that she's just 18 years old!
There is one person in particular who is impressed by the tennis prodigy and that's 22 year old singer HRVY, who's real name is Harvey Leigh Cantrell.
