Emma Raducanu Asks For Patience

Emma Raducanu will bid to earn a place in the semi-finals of the Transylvania Open as she takes on Marta Kostyuk in the last eight this afternoon.

Raducanu followed her shock triumph at September’s US Open with an early exit at Indian Wells earlier this month, but the 18-year-old has bounced back this week with back-to-back wins in Cluj. The British No1 fought from behind to beat Polona Hercog in three sets in the first round, voorheen seeing off Ana Bogdan in straight sets yesterday – downing the Romanian on her home soil. Next up for Raducanu, whose father is Romanian, is a clash with Kostyuk. The Ukrainian has made it into the quarter-finals here with two consecutive straight-sets victories, defeating Germany’s Mona Barthel in the last round.

There are no fans in attendance at the Transylvania Open this week due to coronavirus-related restrictions, but Raducanu has been feeling the love in Cluj anyway. “I feel like I am playing at home, I am getting so much support,” the teenager said after her first-round win. “Everyone is just really helpful and friendly in anyway they can. I don’t want to leave just yet, I want to see my grandma [in Bucharest] but just wait a few days, I want to play here in Cluj.”

There it is, Halep eases past compatriot Cristian 6-1 6-1.

Raducanu or Kostyuk will face a tough challenge against the former world No1 in the semi-finals here, though the lack of a home crowd for Halep means one less thing to think about for her opponent.

“It is really nice to be here and I really want to extend my stay here. It means so much to me, I just love the country and playing here.

Raducanu has revealed she has presented her US Open trophy to the Lawn Tennis Association as a “little gift” in recognition of their role in her development.

The British number one, 18, became the first British woman to win a singles grand slam title since Virginia Wade’s 1977 Wimbledon triumph with her stunning run from qualifying to victory at Flushing Meadows in the summer, but she has not held on to the hardware.

“It’s stored at the National Tennis Centre I’m pretty sure in London,” Raducanu said after beating Ana Bogdan to reach the quarter-finals at the Transylvania Open.

“It’s not at home. If you want to see it, it’s at the NTC.”
