Raducanu eliminated early: “I’m kind of happy”

US Open winner Emma Raducanu was eliminated in her opening match at the Indian Wells tournament.

The British player, who sensationally won the title in New York four weeks ago as a qualifier, lost 2:6, 4:6 in the second round to Aliaksandra Sasnovich from Belarus on Friday (local time). Raducanu had a bye in the first round.

After the end of her ten-match winning streak, Raducanu actually expressed relief. “I’m kind of happy about what happened today. I’m taking it as a lesson so I have more experience going forward,” said the 18-year-old, who surrendered a 4-2 lead in the second set.

Leyla Fernandez, who lost to Raducanu in the US Open final, advanced. The 19-year-old Canadian defeated Frenchwoman Alize Cornet 6-2, 6-3.

Angelique Kerber will enter the tournament in the Californian desert after a walk-through on Sunday night. The 33-year-old, seeded tenth, will face Czech Katerina Siniakova.
