Hello and welcome to protection of Emma Raducanu’s second spherical match on the Rothesay Open in Nottingham.

The Briton made a powerful begin to her marketing campaign when she beat Japanese-American qualifier Ena Shibahara 6-1, 6-4.

Today she faces Ukrainian Daria Snigur for a spot within the quarter-finals.

Raducanu mentioned: “I remember playing her at the Under-12s Winter Cup in Romania. She’s a very unorthodox opponent to play. Someone with amazing hand skills. Really good at deflecting pace. Really good at making me move. She’s someone I grew up playing with in juniors.

“But I haven’t actually spent that much time on the court with her. She makes life very difficult for her opponents and it’s important that I focus on my end of the court. It’s very easy to get frustrated but I’m looking forward to playing and I feel good in myself.”

When requested if she has sympathy for her opponent, who resides in Poland as a result of Russia-Ukraine battle, Raducanu mentioned: “It’s not an easy situation at all. I do sympathise for her, for having to go through that. At the end of the day, when we’re on the court, it’s two people trying to beat each other and there’s nothing more to it.”

On Tuesday, Raducanu grew pissed off with line calls in her match, 24 hours after Harriet Dart referred to as for digital line know-how in any respect tournaments.

“I feel this year Hawk-Eye has been a little bit off – I don’t know why,” mentioned Raducanu. “I think there is a beauty in having all the linesmen and it does add to the drama for the spectators. For us it can be the most frustrating thing ever.”

With Wimbledon lower than three weeks away, Raducanu will likely be eager to go deep into the occasion, get match apply and construct confidence.
