Tennis star Emma Raducanu loses her first match after stunning US Open victory

Teenage tennis sensation Emma Raducanu has lost her first match after winning the US Open last month.

The 18-year-old – ranked 22 in the world – was beaten 6-2 6-4 at the India Wells tournament.

She was beaten by 100th ranked Aliaksandra Sasnovich, 27, from Belarus.


Ms Raducanu – who is still looking for a full-time coach – said:

“I think Aliaksandra played a great match.

“She was better than me today, so she deserves to win.

“I’m kind of glad that what happened today happened so I can learn and take it as a lesson.

“There’s going to be disappointment after any loss.

“I didn’t go in there putting any pressure on myself because in my mind I’m so inexperienced that I’m just taking it all in.”

Ms Raducanu shocked the world of tennis after winning the US Open as a qualifier.

She did not drop a set in her romp to the final.

She hopes to play at the Kremlin Cup in Moscow in 10 days’ time.
