US Open champion Emma Raducanu ready to return to action at Indian Wells

Emma Raducanu is into the quarter-finals of the Transylvania Open after beating Ana Bogdan in straight sets.

The US Open champion prevailed 6-3 6-4 against the Romanian player, and will now face fellow teenager Marta Kostyuk in the last eight after the Ukrainian beat Mona Barthel in her last 16 match.

Raducanu was on fire from the start as she steamed into a 3-0 lead, and held her serve thereafter to take the first set.

She again seized the initiative early in the second set by breaking Bogdan, 28, in the opening game, but the world no 406 responded in kind.

The defining moment came at 3-3 when Raducanu, having missed one break point, then battled back from advantage Bogdan to forge another, and this time took it to move within two games of victory.

At 5-4, the 18-year-old then sealed the match with a hold to love to ensure her tournament in Cluj continues.
