All the action from the 16th meeting in Romania can be followed live
Emma Raducanu returns to court today as she tries to qualify for the Transylvania Open quarter-finals.
After her exit at Indian Wells early this month, Raducanu won her first round in Transylvania. This was the 18-year old’s first win since September’s stunning US Open victory. The British No1 defeated Polona Hercog, defeating her in three sets 4-6 7-5 6-1. Raducanu, whose father was Romanian, stated after the victory, “This means so much to play in my country.” Although it is disappointing that there aren’t many fans, I am sure they were watching me and I wanted to make them proud. “I was on a losing streak so it is really great that I have survived.”
Ana Bogdan, who plays in her native country, is next up for Raducanu. After defeating Ivana Jorovic 7-6 (1), 6-4 in Tuesday’s first round, the world No406 is now chasing her first WTA title. The winner of this match will be matched against Marta Kostyuk from Ukraine, who the 19-year old had defeated in the previous round.
