The match was delayed

It was a busy day at Louis Armstrong Stadium.

Italy’s Jannik Sinner needed five sets to beat Daniel Altmaier 6-7, 6-2, 6-1, 3-6, 6-1. That means Raducanu won’t be on the field for another 20 minutes or so as the day session crowd clears out and night-time ticket holders enter.

Martina Navratilova supports Emma Raducanu

He played well in Cincinnati. It was huge because if she hadn’t won the US Open and had the year she had, she would have been very happy about it and the British press would have been happy about it.

It goes up and comes and goes up in the ranks. But because he won the US Open, the expectations got so high and we saw how well he can play – it’s not even about the results, why aren’t you playing anywhere near the level you played at the US Open?

She couldn’t answer, but she started showing those signs in Cincinnati, so she’ll be very relieved I think with how she played and let’s see how deep she can go.

Once you win a big one, you’re a scalp to beat, people play better, a little extra pep in their step and you look over your shoulder. And then they also learn how to play you.

It was amazing what he did. He’s paying the price for it, but I hope he can pull it together because he’s definitely a huge talent.

Good afternoon

Hello and welcome to our coverage of a big night for Emma Raducanu as she begins the defense of her US Open title.

Almost a year ago, Raducanu shocked the world when she won her first grand slam title in just her second major without dropping a set as a qualifier.

“Twelve months, it’s obviously a long time but, coming back here, I honestly feel like I’ve never left,” he said. “Coming into town, it’s gone so fast. So much has happened, but it feels like I was here yesterday or last week. It’s a really weird feeling. Obviously I’ve learned a lot, but time flies.”

The British No. 1 begins her campaign with a tough task in the form of France’s Alize Cornet. Cornet has several major scalps to her name, including the most recent win at Wimbledon over world No. 1 Iga Swiatek.

But Raducanu comes into the match on the back of impressive wins over Serena Williams and Victoria Azarenka and after a difficult debut season on the WTA Tour, the 19-year-old believes she is back to her best.

“There were definitely tournaments where I didn’t do that, but I’m really happy with Cincinnati, how I did and I think I’ll see the rewards that come, playing Serena and Vika back to back and a pretty tight match against Jessie , my level was definitely showing some positive signs,” he said.

“Results and wins, they don’t come often but obviously when they do you have to really love it and get the positive energy from it and I feel confident knowing I have the ability to produce at that level.

“Playing Vika and Serena, even if it’s not necessarily tennis, a huge part of it is mental, just to stay focused, to not be intimidated by who you’re playing on the other side of the net.

“To have that belief that I had in Cincinnati, I think I’m going to keep it going and try to keep it here.”
