Emma Raducanu is out of the French Open after a 3-6 6-1 6-1 loss to Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the second round.
The French Open is the last of the Grand Slams that Raducanu is making her debut at and, for a set, it looked as if she was in full control of the contest.
Raducanu was swinging freely through the ball and moving well on a surface she believes could be one of her best in the future.

In the second and third sets, Sasnovich increased her own level significantly, while errors became part of Raducanu’s work.
Sasnovich will now face either Angelique Kerber or Elsa Jacquemot in the third round at Roland Garros and Raducanu’s focus will turn to the forthcoming grass-court season.
