Emma Raducanu vs Ana Bogdan LIVE: Stream FREE, TV channel, score and UK start time

EMMA RADUCANU is taking on Romanian Ana Bogdan at the Transylvania Open.

The Brit sensation beat Polona Hercog in three sets on Tuesday night to book her spot in the last-16 of the competition.

Raducanu’s win over Hercog was her first since winning the US Open in September, having been dumped out of Indian Wells in the first round just weeks after.

And she’ll be hoping to pick up another trophy by the end of next week as she looks to move on in Romania, where her father was born.

Opponent Ana Bogdan beat Serbia’s Ivana Jorovic in the first round and has been full of praise for Raducanu.

She said: “Of, course, even to me [what she did was inspirational].

“I said to myself that everything is possible, everything is achievable if you work hard and if you believe, if you are positive, you can do it.

“It’s very important to have the right attitude, this is what I admired when I watched her: the focus, her shots, and the way she behaved.

“For me she was an inspiration, I think for many girls out there too. She is a great athlete and a great champion, I’m looking forward to the match.”

“I think she won thanks to her attitude, the way she behaved the whole tournament. That smile and that innocence on her face.

“I think that was the key. She always kept a positive attitude no matter the score, she was there, but positively. That helped her a lot.”

What has been said?

Emma Raducanu was delighted with her win over Polona Hercog on Tuesday.

She said: “To have won my first WTA match means a lot to me.

“I was on a losing streak of WTA matches, so I got my first one. It feels like a huge win. The key was to try and stay mentally composed. I

“I knew I wasn’t playing very well so I needed to keep going one point at a time.

  • RADUCANU 1-0* BOGDAN

    A tough opening game for Raducanu.

    Her serve was put under examination straightaway as Bogdan moved into a 15-40 position.

    Over the course of five minutes, Raducanu faced three break points – two were saved by unforced errors from Bogdan that crashed into the net while one another saw a brilliant winner from the Brit.

    That was not the easy opener she or her camp would have wanted.
