Can Radukanu make a foray in South Korea?

Good morning and welcome to Emma Raducanu’s rebuild after her first-round US Open exit to face Poland’s Magda Linet in the quarterfinals of the Korea Open.

Raducanu reached this stage after a 6-3, 7-5 victory over Belgium’s Yanina Wikmeier on Thursday morning.

The British No. 1 and No. 6 seeds, who have been plagued by injuries, are determined to progress in Seoul after failing to defend their Grand Slam title in New York and a second-round loss at the Slovenia Open last week.

“My goal on the court is to keep trying to swing more and more freely every game. My other goal is to stay in Korea as long as possible,” she said.

“I struggled a bit with my legs last week, just did a lot of training, and as I said, the rest of the year is really trying to build my body for next year.

“So I trained a lot – like before the game today, I played 90 minutes on the court and I just wanted to keep myself in good shape.

“It’s accompanied by little issues at times. At the moment, it’s something I’m dealing with, but I know it’s for the greater good, so I kind of embraced the process.”
