Emma Raducanu beats Ana Bogdan to reach Transylvania Open quarters
The Guardian says a few days after successfully navigating tension, frustration and inexperience to secure her first ever WTA win, Emma Raducanu returned to the BT Arena far more relaxed and at ease. It was reflected in a far less stressful day on the court as she served extremely well and imposed her more potent weapons on a tough but inferior opponent, defeating Ana Bogdan of Romania 6-3, 6-4 to move into the quarter-final of the Transylvania Open in Cluj-Napoca.
The victory marked Raducanu’s 25th win of the year in all competitions, with just seven losses, and she has now reached her second tour level quarter-final. She will next face fellow teenager – and rival from junior days – Marta Kostyuk of Ukraine, who coolly moved past Germany’s Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-4.
