January 16, (THEWILL) – British tennis player, Emma Raducanu, secured her place in the second round of the Australian Open for the second time in her career, despite recently recovering from an ankle injury.

Raducanu, who only just returned to the court after picking up the injury, at the ASB Classic in New Zealand, defeated German player, Tamara Korpatsch, 6-3, 6-2 in her opening match.

Though Raducanu’s movement on her backhand side appeared restricted at the start of the match, she quickly found her footing and produced an assured performance against the world No. 74, whom she also defeated in Stuttgart last year.

Raducanu’s superior baseline play and aggressive responding to Korpatsch’s serves ultimately proved too much for the German player. She now faces a challenging test in the second round, as she will go up against 2022 French Open finalist, Coco Gauff, who defeated Katerina Siniakova in straight sets on Rod Laver Arena.

Despite the difficult match ahead, Raducanu’s win over Korpatsch shows that she is a force to be reckoned with, even when recovering from injury.
