Raducanu Crashes Out Of Miami Open In First Round

Raducanu Crashes Out Of Miami Open In First Round

Britain's Emma Raducanu has been knocked out in the first round of the Miami Open after a three-set defeat.

The 2021 US Open champion was beaten 6-3 3-6 6-2 by fellow former US Open champion Bianca Andreescu.

It was an intriguing contest between the two Grand Slam champions who showed glimpses of their potential.

While Canada's Andreescu clinched the first set, Raducanu fought back to level the match as she clinched the second set to force a decider set.

Raducanu's inability to break Andreescu's serve from 0-40 in the opening game of the third set cost her the match as the Canadian turned the game in her favour to claim victory in two hours and 33 minutes and take her winning record against the Brit to 2-0.

"Both of us have won a [Grand Slam], we're both good players," said Raducanu whose run in the just concluded Indian Wells was ended by Iga Swiatek.

"It was always going to be a difficult matchup but I think that there were definitely patches of some pretty good tennis in there."

The Brit also indicated that she will seek solutions to fix the wrist problems that have hampered her performances this season.

"It's something I've been managing for some time," she said. 

"I just need to review after this tournament really and figure out what my next steps are. 

"I'm able to play in the short term but the current solutions aren't very viable long term.

"I feel like this year has been difficult in the sense that I have been managing a few existing injuries and that has been annoying and frustrating because I've been working as best as I can."

Raducanu is expected to return to action on clay in Stuttgart next month since she was not invited for Great Britain's Billie Jean King Cup clash with France in Coventry across April 14-15.
