Emma Raducanu continues meteoric rise despite missing out on WTA title in Chicago

The 18-year-old dispatched of 2019 Roland Garros finalist Marketa Vondrousova, who then went on to win a Silver medal at the Olympics, en route to the round of 16.

Her breakthrough ended there as she retired while a set down to Ajla Tomljanovic after struggling with her breathing.

She’s now backed up her fairytale week at Wimbledon by making her first WTA final, scoring wins over tough opponents in the process.

Raducanu faced top seed van Uytvanck in her opening round, winning 7-6(7) 6-3, and beat former junior world No 1s Clara Burel and Claire Liu, dropping her only set of the tournament to Liu in their semi-final clash.
