Emma Raducanu marks clay-court debut in style with victory over Storm Sanders in Stuttgart
The Independent says Emma Raducanu breezed into the second round of the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix match in Stuttgart with a straight-sets victory over Storm Sanders.
US Open champion Raducanu saw off Australian qualifier Sanders 6-1 6-2 as she marked her WTA Tour clay-court debut in style.
The 19-year-old, seeded eighth in Stuttgart, showed no discomfort after suffering from a blister on her foot when playing for Great Britain at the Billie Jean King Cup in Prague last weekend.
Raducanu took a little while to find her rhythm as she was taken to deuce on her first two service games.
