Tearful Raducanu suffers ankle injury 11 days before Aus Open

Emma Raducanu was in tears after retiring with an injured ankle at the ASB Classic, less than two weeks before the Australian Open begins.

The Briton had breezed through the first set of the last-16 tie against Slovakia's Viktoria Kuzmova, winning 6-0 in just over 20 minutes.

Raducanu faced far more of a challenge in the second set, and received treatment on her left ankle near the end of it, before pulling out in tears at the start of the third set.

Raducanu had been broken at 2-2 and fell 4-2 behind in the second set, but broke back in the 10th game of the set to level things at 5-5. The Briton was broken again in the very next game, however, before going on to lose the second set 7-5
