Emma Raducanu will take on Wang Yafan in the second round of the 2024 Australian Open.

Emma Raducanu will play against World No. 94 Wang Yafan in the second round of the 2024 Australian Open on Thursday.

After an prolonged injury hiatus, Raducanu returned to the tour at the start of the year. She made a winning comeback as she defeated Elena-Gabriela Ruse in her very first match at the ASB Classic. She then lost to eventual runner-up Elina Svitolina in the second round in three sets.

Raducanu took on Shelby Rogers in the first round of the Australian Open and played a pretty good match to beat her 6-3, 6-2. She'll now be aiming to reach the third round of a Major for the first time since her title-winning run at the 2021 US Open.

Raducanu's second round foe is Wang Yafan from China. The latter got the better of 22nd seed Sorana Cirstea to get her campaign up and running at the Australian Open. The Chinese trailed 6-0, 3-0, but flipped the script for a comeback win in three sets.

Wang has a couple of top 10 wins to her name and has won a lone title on the WTA Tour, which was back in 2019. She's now trying to reach the third round of a Grand Slam for the first time in her career.
