First set Emma Raducanu
61 percent first serve. Two double faults for the ER. He earned 81 percent of the points on his first serve.
For the opponent, only 50 percent of the first serve hits the mark. And these three stuntmen hurt him.
What can he do now, serving at the start of the second set?

Yastremska hits a big ball and here’s a stunning cross-court bat. But he also seems a little low on self-confidence, as befits someone who has lost seven times in a row. Double mistake there. But it keeps the service up to 30.
Amazon commentator Candy Reid says Yastremska has “enormous strength on both flanks.” Very good is the Amazon coverage I found. I mean, there’s definitely plenty if you want to watch tennis.
Emma’s new coach. I can’t see it yet, but I’m sure it’s there.
He says he’s happy to be behind target, but still, his rank before today means he’s the top seed.
Raducanu wins and takes the toss.
Yastremska suffered seven defeats in a row.
First appeared Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska. Here is Raducanu.
Looks like a beautiful evening in Slovenia. I guess there were maybe 50 spectators in the courtroom. The DJ avidly plays some rinsing EDM/techno bangers. The crowd does not lose it,
32 players only
coincidentally you are only five wins away from victory in this tournament.
now he’s serving for the second set and the match… and he has indeed pushed the Danish away.
OK then. You, Emma.
We can see some more of Haddad Maia
In this, second-seeded and Emma Raducanu are first-seeded, so they could theoretically meet in the final on September 18.
Raducanu not yet on the field
Hello, if you are new to us, Emma Raducanu is not yet on the court at the Slovenian Open. First we have to get the result of the match between Denmark’s Tauson and Brazil’s Beatriz Haddad Maia. The second is leading 4-2 and serving.
Emma Raducanu soon on the field
Hello and welcome to our live blog of Emma Raducanu’s first round match at the Zavarovalnica Sava Portoroz tennis event, or Slovenian Open. Raducanu, who, of course, won the US Open brilliantly in 2021, has struggled ever since and is now ranked 83rd in the world rankings. Can he stop the decay with a first-round victory over Ukrainian Dayana Yastremska?
While we wait for the players to take the field after 6 PM, let’s take a look at Raducanu’s latest news.
The Telegraph’s tennis correspondent Simon Briggs said Emma now has more information about experience, ranking points, court skills, etc. One cannot cut short Emma Raducanu’s path to salvation, writes Simon. “The magic of transcending boards on smaller occasions would have earned the respect of his peers in the dressing room, who had so far treated him as a destination.”
The issue of coaching and support team was a question that came up a lot.
Emma Raducanu urged to find stability in coaching regimen and stop ‘tampering’
“I want new experiences. It doesn’t matter what it is. I think any player would be happy to win a tournament. Whatever the level, I think it makes a huge difference.”
Maybe some guidance or inspiration can be taken from the following piece.
She and Andy Murray may team up in a new mixed gender tournament.
What about tonight’s rival? Yastremska, 22 years old from Odessa, takes 89th place in the ranking. He made it to the age of 21 and reached the fourth round at Wimbledon, very obviously without a trophy. We’ll see if Emma can make the show away again after 18:00 UK time, the earliest they can play.
First, they have to wait for the conclusion of the match between Denmark’s Clara Tauson and six-metre Brazilian Beatriz Haddad Maia, as we should all do. The South American won the first set and they’re up 3-0 in the second set so I hope it doesn’t take too long.
