Day one: British No.1s claim first round wins

Day one saw straight sets wins for both British No.1s as Emma Raducanu set up a clash with USA’s Coco Gauff and Cam Norrie made the second round at the Australian Open for only the second time in his career.

Jack Draper went toe-to-toe with world No.2 Rafael Nadal on the Rod Laver Arena, but lost out in four sets, while Britain’s Harriet Dart and Kyle Edmund were defeated by seeds.

Raducanu – who was returning from an injury that forced her to retire in Auckland two weeks ago – eased to victory in her opener against Germany’s Tamara Korpatsch 6-3, 6-2.


A nervy start from both players saw five breaks of serve to start the match, but once Raducanu found her rhythm, it was game over for the German. Having seen out the first set, Raducanu settled on serve – making 28% more first serves – and instead piled the pressure on her opponent to break twice and seal the match.

The win sets up an exciting match up against another of the games rising stars and seventh seed, Coco Gauff. The two have never played before, but Gauff comes in having won her first title of the season in Auckland.


Norrie came through with comfortable win over Luca van Assche 7-6(3), 6-0, 6-3 to set up a second round match against either Thiago Monteiro and Constant Lestienne.

The young Frenchman forced the issue in the first set, refusing to let Norrie take an early lead and breaking the Brit twice as he tried to serve it out. Into the tie-break and Assche seemed to be on the ascent with an early 2-0 lead, but Norrie found another gear to take seven of the next eight points.

This took the sting out off the Frenchman’s game as Norrie took complete control of the match, dropping just 12 points in the second set and breaking early in the third to book a place in the second round.


Draper put up a strong fight against 22-time Grand Slam champion and reigning title holder, Rafael Nadal, but eventually lost out 7-5, 2-6, 6-4, 6-1 in three hours and 43 minutes.

Both players tussled for control in the match, as Draper’s free-firing groundstrokes blasted the Brit to two early breaks at the start of the second as he borught the match back on level terms.

On they fought into the third, but Nadal’s experience proved pivotal as he clinched the all-important break in the final game of the set as the young Brit’s backhand sailed wide.

Draper found himself a break to the good in the fourth, but as he continued to battle against cramps, the almost impossible challenge became all the more difficult and Nadal was able to see out a hard-fought opening round win.


Dart missed out on a place in the second round having lost out to 32nd seed Jil Teichmann 7-5, 6-1.

The British No.2 had held a break lead in the first set and had opportunities to extend her lead to 5-2, but once the Swiss star held off three break points, momentum swung in her favour. From 5-5, Teichmann won eight of the next nine games to claim victory in an hour and 46 minutes.

2018 semi-finalist Edmund bowed out to world No.16 Jannik Sinner in a tough first round match-up, 6-4, 6-0, 6-2.
