Emma Raducanu thrashes Angie Kerber in battle of Grand Slam champions in Stuttgart | Tennis | Sport

Raducanu has now recorded three wins in a row for the first time this year, and the first time since Indian Wells in March 2023. She came from a set down to beat both Caroline Garcia and Diane Parry during Britain’s BJK Cup qualifier tie against France over the weekend and carried her momentum into Stuttgart.

„It was obviously very difficult to play Angie because she has so much history behind her. You’re not just playing Angie Kerber, you’re playing a person who has achieved all those amazing results so it’s definitely one that you really have to get your mind around and not get psyched out about and just try and play the ball in front of you,“ Raducanu said after the match.

„I think it wasn’t exactly the prettiest match, I must say. But I just really tried to focus in and think of the next point, think of the next ball ahead and not just get too bogged down because there were some really long games that went back and forth so I’m just happy to have got through that.“
