EMMA RADUCANU has revealed her plans to frame the letter she received from the Queen following her US Open triumph on Saturday.
The 18-year-old sensationally fired her way to glory on her Flushing Meadows debut with a straight sets victory over Leylah Fernandez in New York.
And among the plethora of congratulations messages for Raducanu was one from the Queen herself.
The teenager was taken aback by the words from Her Majesty and insists she will cherish the letter.
She said: "It meant everything to get a message from Her Majesty. She's such a great inspiration and role model for the whole country so to have a note from her.
"I was extremely honoured and very very grateful that she took notice of my tennis. I can't believe it.
"I'm maybe going to frame that letter or something."
The Monarch's letter read: "It is a remarkable achievement at such a young age, and is a testament to your hard work and dedication.

"I have no doubt your outstanding performance, and that of your opponent Leylah Fernandez, will inspire the next generation of tennis players.
"I send my warmest good wishes to you and your many supporters. "
Raducanu silenced a New York crowd that was heavily cheering on Canada's Fernandez to win 6-4 6-3.
She told her own fans in a video message: "Thank you so much for all your support over the last three weeks and for coming to the match day.
"I really appreciate it, it got me through some really tough moments so thank you so much and I hope to see you again here soon."
Raducanu is the first British woman to win a Grand Slam in 44 years and the first qualifier to take home a singles title.
Amazingly, she did not drop a SINGLE set all tournament.
