Raducanu cruises past Kostyuk in dominant display


Emma Raducanu produced her best performance since winning the US Open to surge past Marta Kostyuk and into the third round of the Madrid Open.

Having managed back-to-back victories at an event just once in the seven months following her New York triumph, Raducanu has now done it twice in as many weeks.

A fortunate draw helped in Stuttgart before she produced a very creditable performance in defeat by world No 1 Iga Swiatek in the quarter-finals.

The 19-year-old has built on that positive showing in the Spanish capital, winning 11 of the last 12 games to see off Tereza Martincova in the opening round after a poor start and then racing to a 6-2 6-1 success against fellow teenager Kostyuk.
