U.S. Open Champion
Born in Toronto but raised in London, Emma is currently ranked Britain's No. 1 women's tennis player and the world's favorite new wunderkind. She first gained public attention this past June at Wimbledon but her history-making championship win at the U.S. Open has certainly put her on the map. Not only did she take home the title, she was also the first ever qualifier in either men's or women's tennis to even make it the finals of a Grand Slam tournament. Now that's cause for some major applause.
