Emma Raducanu wins in Romania but Cameron Norrie loses in Austria
BBC Sport says Britain’s Emma Raducanu says it “means a lot” to have her father Ian experiencing her success first hand as she reached the Transylvania Open quarter-finals in his native Romania.
With her dad watching, the 18-year-old produced a composed display to win 6-3 6-4 against home player Ana Bogdan.
Covid travel restrictions meant he was not in New York to see her US Open win.
“Now he can really experience how it is after a bit of success and enjoy it,” said Raducanu, who is seeded third.
