British star Emma Raducanu begins the defence of her US Open tennis title tonight. Here’s how to stream Emma Racucanu vs Alize Cornet live on TV and online.
12 months on from her own personal fairytale of New York, British teenager Emma Raducanu is back at Flushing Meadows to begin the defence of the US Open title.
Raducanu came through the qualifiers and won ten straight matches (without dropping a set) to claim one of tennis’ four Grand Slam events. She was the first British woman to do so since Virginia Wade won Wimbledon in 1977.
Now she’s a known quantity, the 11th seed and arrives in New York after a less than ideal year, upset by injury, poor form and coaching changes. Although she did pick up an MBE!
It won’t be an easy task for Emma, who faces the French player Alize Cornet in the first round on Tuesday evening, US time. The experienced Cornet is a former world number 11 and made the fourth round of the US Open in 2020.
