Emma Raducanu Latest Win Leads Her To Set Up Quarter-Final clash With Iga Swiatek in Stuttgart

British Tennis player Emma Raducanu will be playing against the Australian qualifier Storm Sanders in the quarter-final. She won the match 6-1 6-2 and will move on to the second round in Stuttgart. The 19-year-old will be playing with Germany’s Tamara Korpatsch next. After picking up just her fourth victory after an injury hit in the 2022 season the player’s future looks promising.

Emma Raducanu Back To Back Wins

Emma Raducanu has won back-to-back matches for the first time in six months. After her last win, she will be facing the Australian star tennis player in the quarter-final clash. The world No 1 Iga Swiatek will be competing against Emma Raducanu. The match will be held in the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix in Stuttgart.

The US Open Championship

The US Open champion started with thrilling matches and finished strongly. Emma defeated German Tamara Korpatsch 6-0 2-6 6-1 in the first WTA Tour event on clay.

The 19-year-old beat American Storm Sanders by playing straight sets in round one. She picked up where she left off and won against lucky loser Korpatsch. She dropped just seven points and won in an incredibly one-sided first set.

The German player found her range in the second and she began to put on significant pressure on Raducanu. She was unable to come up with the answers.

The British player worked hard and made a good start in the deciding set. She threw Korpatsch off her rhythm and threw a successful series of high balls. She drove her momentum to the finish line and won the match.

Speaking on-court at the end of the match Raducanu said:

“Overall I feel like Tamara came out in the second set and played some unbelievable tennis.

“I didn’t even think that I was making too many mistakes but I dropped the ball slightly short and she was all over it. For me, it was just about regrouping for the third set and trying to stay aggressive.”

Raducanu Match Fixtures

In her second WTA Tour quarter-final, Raducanu will face the challenging task of taking on Pole Swiatek. The star player is on a 20-match winning streak. She has lost just three games in her last six sets.

The previous meeting of the two tennis players was in the quarter-finals of the girls’ singles at Wimbledon in 2018. Swiatek won 6-0 6-1 in that match.

“Of course, she’s in great form and it will be an interesting match but she’s No 1 in the world,” said Raducanu. “I feel like I’ve got no pressure going out there, playing on clay against her, so I’m looking forward to the match.”
