There was a lot of excitement for Emma Ruadcanu on the centre court and the British player passed the test with flying colours. Playing a rather solid match Raducanu was able to win in straight sets which is all that she hoped for before the match. She looked fine from a physical standpoint showing no issues in moving on the court.
The first set was very competitive but it was the Belgian who was more aggressive. She hit both more winners and had more mistakes than Raducanu who was just overall very solid.

It was a rather competitive match as neither player played perfectly. They both had their chances and the Belgian player took hers in the 2nd set. She was up 3-1 in the 2nd set which was a very good thing for her considering she held from 0-40 at the start of the 2nd set. Raducanu started applying more pressure as the 2nd set went on and she was able to overturn the result.
The Belgian player simply could not keep up and committed far too many mistakes in this match. Raducanu did not risk much but was rather consistent and it paid off.
