Emma Raducanu has just won her first WTA match on Tuesday in Cluj-Napoca after defeating Polona Hercog. Until that moment, at a professional level, Raducanu won matches only during slams (Wimbledon and US Open) or at a lower level.
After winning her first-round in Cluj-Napoca, Raducanu gains 2 places in the live rankings to be the new world number 21, her new career-high. Emma is now a couple of steps from breaking into the top 20. However, to achieve that, she needs to win at least 2 matches.
Emma will play the world no.106 Ana Bogdan in the 2nd round. In the past, they have never played each other until now on the main tour.
