Emma Raducanu retires with hip injury in longest match of WTA season

The Guardian says The reigning US Open champion, Emma Raducanu, retired in the final set of a marathon first competitive outing since bowing out at the Australian Open.

The No 1 seed was forced to quit with a left hip injury after three hours and 36 minutes in the first round of the Guadalajara Open, with Australia’s Daria Saville progressing 5-7, 7-6 (4), 4-3 from the longest match of the WTA season.

The 19-year-old from Britain was playing her first match since last month’s painful exit in the second round of the Australian Open, when a blistered racket hand contributed to a three-set defeat by Danka Kovinic.
