Britain’s US Open winner Emma Raducano lost to Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk 2:6, 1:6 in the quarter-finals of this year’s second WTA Tour tournament in the Romanian city of Cluj-Napoca. The 19-year-old tennis player has not been able to get back on the winning path since her success in New York.
In September, Raducanu caused quite a stir by winning the US Open as the first eligible competitor in history. She hasn’t lost a set in ten matches.
Later, a young British girl of Romano-Chinese origin was no longer successful. She was eliminated from Indian Wells in the first round, and at Cluj-Napoca, where she started with third place (currently 23 in the WTA rankings), she lost in the quarter-finals from 55th on Kostiuk’s world list.
In the semi-finals, the Ukrainian will play against the former leader of the WTA rankings, Romanian Simona Halep, and Estonian Anett Kontaveit against Sweden’s Rebecca Petersson.
In August, German Andrea Petkovic won the first championship of the year in this city.
Simona Halep (Romania 1) beat Jacqueline Christian (Romania) 6-1, 6-1
Annette Kontaveit (Estonia, 2) – Anilina Kalinina (Ukraine, 8) 6: 3, 6: 1
Marta Kostyuk (Ukraine, 6) beat Emma Radokano (Great Britain, 3), 6-2, 6-1.
Rebecca Peterson (Sweden) v Lesia Kurenko (Ukraine) 6-2, 3-6, 6-3
