Fernandez, inspired by fellow 18-year-old Carlos Alcaraz's win over men's third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas, followed suit by producing a stunning upset of her own at Arthur Ashe Stadium.

Darkness behind the return of Abba's Dancing Queens: It was the relaunch that thrilled the world. But why did it take 40 years? Torment, multiple failed marriages, suicide, a child's fatal car crash - and even a twisted affair with a stalker?
RICHARD KAY: In 1979, at the height of Abba's fame, they split up - to the horror of Abba fans - and, at a stroke, blew away that wholesome image.

The pain of the split was immortalised in the hit The Winner Takes It All, and many fans have wondered over the years if Bjorn was being deliberately cruel in asking his ex-wife to sing the tragic lyric: 'Tell me does she kiss like I used to kiss you?'
