One thing that stood out throughout the main draw rounds of the US Open as she progressed, Raducanu’s stats given how few tour-level and hard court matches she had played set her right up there with her opponent. Not surprisingly, this is the same case here except for just one element – converting break points.

Playing Styles & Prediction

Raducanu will be under insane media scrutiny as she takes the court once more, but she still has a fair bit of currency on her side. For a start she will gave no expectations of playing here – and will be facing a player whose hard court form has tailed off a bit since the start of this swing.

But Sasnovich has been out there on the circuit for a few weeks and has a little momentum coming into this match. Raducanu has a well balanced game and more importantly a head for the occasion. Still, sje would be inhuman if there were not a few nerves as she takes to the court again.

Prediction: Raducanu in three sets.
