Toronto Open: Reigning US Open Champion Emma Raducanu Exit
Emma Raducanu, the reigning US Open champion from Britain, was eliminated in the first round after falling to Camila Giorgi of Italy 7-6 (7/0), 6-2.
Raducanu maintained her positive attitude despite the loss in the city of her birth 19 years ago as her US Open championship defence approached.
“It was a really good match, to be honest,” Raducanu said.
“The level was pretty high, especially in the first set.
“Camila’s a great opponent. She won this tournament last year. I just need to get better at dealing with players who play probably as quick as she does.”
