Tennis News: As the British No 1 prepares to face Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus in the second round on Wednesday, Emma Raducanu compares playing at Roland Garros to playing at the US Open.

Raducanu had to come back from a set down to defeat Linda Noskova, a 17-year-old debutant, in a roller-coaster ride on Monday.

Despite withdrawing from the Italian Open earlier this month due to a back issue, the Briton said she was fit to compete, the latest in a succession of injuries that have hampered her development on the Tour since her unlikely victory at the US Open.

As the British No 1 prepares to face Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus in the second round on Wednesday, Emma Raducanu compares playing at Roland Garros to playing at the US Open.

Raducanu had to come back from a set down to defeat Linda Noskova, a 17-year-old debutant, in a roller-coaster ride on Monday.

“One thing that I have been doing in the lead-up for this week and the whole of last week, I was doing a lot in the gym, a lot before practice, after practice, just keeping all the muscles fired up,” said the 19-year-old.

“It’s something I probably haven’t really done before, train through tournaments. I am pretty pleased with how I was out there physically, and I feel really good, to be honest.”

Despite withdrawing from the Italian Open earlier this month due to a back issue, the Briton said she was fit to compete, the latest in a succession of injuries that have hampered her development on the Tour since her unlikely victory at the US Open.

“I think that the French Open, I’d say gives me similar vibes to the US Open just because of the crowd and just how involved they get,” she said.

“It’s a complete contrast to Wimbledon where it’s dead silent. You can actually hear a pin drop before you serve. It’s incredible. It definitely took some getting used to, but when I went out there today, I was honestly just enjoying it.”

Sasnovich is ranked 47 in the world and has competed in Paris four times before. The Minsk right-hander, who advanced to the quarterfinals in Rome earlier this month, will be optimistic about her prospects against Raducanu.
