    Emma Raducanu

    Many thanks to Roytennisfan who originally posted the following notes here as an introduction to Emma Raducanu after she'd won her R2 match.

    In R1 Emma was up against 30year old Qualifier Vitalia Diatchenko of Russia, WR150.

    Emma is 18 years old, playing in the Wimbledon main draw with a WC.

    Today she played (and beat) her first top 100 player, hitting Vondrousova all around the Court in a dominating 6-2 6-4 R2 win.

    In R3 she faces the similarly ranked Sorana Cirstea who beat Azarenka today.
    Can Emma win another round?

    Definitely one to watch. Her wins so far have raised her (live) ranking 100 places to currently #233. Emma appears to be a very exciting prospect for British tennis; obviously still early days but massive potential.

    Emma was a break down but took the 1st set 7'6(4) over Diatchenko.


    Emma Raducanu wins 7'6(4), 6'0. It's only her 2nd match on the main WTA Tour!

    Great Grand Slam debut for her and justification for that main draw Wildcard. She was originally given a WC into Qualifying but her performance in the Nottingham ITF merited an upgrade from Mr Wimbledon. Well done Wimbers!

    If anyone's interested, Emma's match has been moved to Ct 12 at 6.30pm
    I thought they were optimistic with the original scheduling!

    Emma was 0-3 in the 2nd set when I looked 15 mins ago ...
    ... she's now 4 all having broken back and held her serve.

    Vondrousova to serve next - and Emma breaks!!!
