AUSTRALIAN OPEN DRAW. Raducanu with Stephens. Halep, Muguruza on her way

Emma Raducanu Australian Open Draw

Emma Raducanu is about to start her first Australian Open, where she will face Sloane Stephens in the first round of the main draw.

The British sensation is not expected to have a deep run during the first major of the year despite being the recent US Open champion. Emma still needs to acquire more experience playing at the top level. On Tuesday, she was literally brushed aside by Elena Rybakina in her first match all of the year in Sydney when she lost 6-0 6-1.

Projected path

Simona Halep and Garbine Muguruza are also on Emma’s path. Here is the plausible path.
R1 – Stephens
R2 – Kovinic
R3 – Halep
R4 – Muguruza
QF – Kontaveit
SF – Sabalenka
F – Barty

Here is Emma’s part of the draw.
