Emma Raducanu shows three signs she can repeat US Open heroics and lift Stuttgart title

A strong mentality

Considering the frenzy around her ever since her win in New York, it’s not difficult to imagine Raducanu might have struggled with the attention. But her performances so far in Stuttgart have showed a woman whose focus is exactly where it needs to be – keeping concentration and winning points.

She used it to great effect to bounce back from losing the second set and kill off the game against Korpatsch. And even though the 6-1, 6-2 scoreline made her victory over Sanders look like a walk in the park, there were a lot of lengthy points which tested both her physical and mental endurance.

“I feel like there were many long long deuce games so I’m very happy to have battled through against Storm,” was Raducanu’s assessment. “You know, she’s played two matches in qualifying but she’s a great opponent, we played last year and it was extremely tricky so I’m just really happy to have somehow found a way to come through those long games and put on a good performance.”
