Emma Raducanu struggled with stomach problems in her 4:6, 6:4, 4:6 defeat against Yafan Wang. “In the third set I suddenly felt incredibly sick, I suddenly felt very weak, dizzy. I had a hard time not throwing up,” said the Brit after the defeat against the 94th in the world.

The 21-year-old was only able to play nine games in 2023 due to injury. After a nine-month break, she made her comeback on the WTA tour at the preparatory tournament in Auckland.

Jessica Pegula, however, was surprisingly eliminated. The fifth-seeded American lost 4:6, 2:6 against France’s Clara Burel.

Her compatriot Sloane Stephens did better: The former US Open winner defeated Daria Kasatkina (No. 14) after falling behind 4:6, 6:3, 6:3.
