Emma Raducanu prevails in second round of US Open qualifying

British teenager Emma Raducanu is one step away from a place in the US Open main draw after coming through the second round of qualifying.

The 18-year-old dropped just three games as she rolled over Holland’s Bibiane Schoofs 6-1 6-2 in the first round but was made to work harder for the win against Mariam Bolkvadze of Georgia.

Her 6-3 7-5 victory sets up a final qualifying match against Egyptian Mayar Sherif.

Also through to the final round of qualifying is Harriet Dart who prevailed over Lucrezia Stefanini 7-6 (1) 7-6 (5), the first set seeing 10 breaks of serve.

Dart will go on to face Viktoriya Tomova while Katie Boulter will next play Kristina Kucova after beating Vitalia Diatchenko 6-2 5-7 6-4.

Liam Broady’s US Open hopes were dashed by Marco Trungelliti who won 6-4 6-4.

And a trio of Brits fell at the second round in the women’s draw on Thursday, Francesca Jones going down 6-4 6-4 to Jaqueline Adina Cristian, Jodie Anna Burrage losing in three sets to Stefanie Voegele 3-6 6-4 7-6 (4) and Samantha Murray pipped by Monica Niculescu 6-4 3-6 6-3.
