Emma Raducanu raised a few eyebrows when she won the 2021 US Open in an emphatic fashion. However, what transpired after that wasn’t expected at all. Raducanu, who made a comeback on the court at Indian Wells was knocked out in her opening match.

The Brit would be itching to make a strong comeback by delivering a memorable performance at the Transylvania Open. On the other hand, Polona Hercog also had a forgettable outing at Indian Wells where she was also defeated in her first match.

Polona lost to Anastasija Sevastova even after winning the first set. Post that, Polna had a moderately successful outing in the ITF USA 23A where she couldn’t go any further than the quarter-finals. At the Transylvania Open, Polona has a monumental task ahead of her in the name of Emma Raducanu.
