Emma Raducanu advances in Slovenia after winning her first match since an early exit from the US Open.
Emma Raducanu won her first match since the US Open, beating Dayana Yastremska at the Slovenia Open in Portoroz on Monday.
Raducanu won the first set 6-2 and led the second set 5-3 until the Ukrainian was forced to retire.
Yastremska had to retire after aggravating an existing wrist problem.
Raducanu saved all but one of her four break points on her serve, sinking Yastremska, who retired two points from defeat.
Raducanu was pleased to win this, her first match since the defence of her US Open title ended in a first-round defeat to Alize Cornet.
"It has been really nice to be here. I came here early and it is a great place to have a tournament," she said afterwards.
