Emma Raducanu made her first WTA semi-final by defeating Magda Linette, winning in straight sets. However, the odds were not in Raducanu’s favor in the quarter-finals. The former US Open champion had to withdraw from the match against Jelena Ostapenko due to a gluteal injury.

In Friday’s match, Raducanu won the opening set with a strong start against Linette, having a 5-1 lead after 35 minutes. Although Linette was leading the scoreboard in the second set of the match, Raducanu made an incredible comeback, breaking Linette’s serve twice and finishing the match with straight sets.

Earlier this year, Emma faced a massive drop in her ranking from her career-high 10th place. Therefore, this win could have been a comeback for her. The 19-year-old could have boosted her rank from 77th to the top 50 had she won the title this time.

However, the tables had turned in Raducanu’s next match against Jelena Ostapenko, where she had to withdraw from the match due to her injury. In the semifinals, everything was fine for Raducanu in the first set, with Raducanu winning the set 6-4. However, Ostapenko won the second set 6-3 as the British player had to take a medical timeout in that set. Despite Raducanu’s attempts to recover in the third set, she was forced out of the game due to a gluteal injury. As this is his fourth retirement this year, Raducanu’s prospect of making the top 50 has been shattered.
