The US starlet, Gauff, made a nervy start to the clash which allowed the soon-to-be world number one Sabalenka to take a 2-0 lead.

However the nerves of the occasion – not to mention playing in front of a New York crowd who were backing the 19-year-old American – led the Belarusian to make a series of errors to allow Gauff back into the game.

With the score in the first set 3-2 in Sabalenka’s favour, the high-quality encounter reached boiling point as the two stars played out a memorable point.

It was Sabalenka who served with Gauff forced into an impressive return against the big-hitting 25-year-old.

Ultimately it was Sabalenka who claimed the point after slamming home, before celebrating in front of the very impressed crowd.
