Will Raducanu be able to march in Korea?

Hello and welcome to Emma Raducanu’s reconstruction coverage in the wake of her first round exit from the US Open as she faces Poland’s Magda Linette in the final eight of the Korea Open.

Raducanu reached this stage after scoring a 6-3, 7-5 win over Belgian Yanina Wickmayer on Thursday morning.

The British number 1 and sixth-seeded, who has been plagued with injury problems, is determined to make progress here in Seoul after failing to defend her Grand Slam title in New York and a second round defeat to Slovenia Open last week.

“My goal on the pitch is to keep trying to swing more and more free in every game. And my other goal is to try to stay in Korea for as long as possible,” he said.

“Last week I struggled a bit with my legs, just doing a lot of training and, as I said, the rest of this year is just trying to improve physically for next year.

“So I’m training a lot, like before today’s game, I played 90 minutes on the pitch and I’m just trying to get back in shape.

“And that sometimes comes with minor inconveniences. At the moment, it’s something I’m just managing, but I know it’s for a greater benefit, so I’ve somehow accepted that process.”
