Emma Raducanu is eliminated in the first round in Toronto

Emma Raducanu was eliminated in the first round at the National Bank Open in Toronto after losing to defending champion Camila Giorgi in straight sets.

The world number 10. and nine seeded Raducanu lost 6:2 (7:6 (0)) to the Italian world number 29, who was the tournament winner in Montreal last year.

Raducanu lost to Liudmila Samsonova in the quarterfinals of the Citi Open in Washington last week and preparations for her US Open title defense later this month were resumed in her native city.

The British teenager missed chances to seize the initiative in both sets and took a 2-0 lead in the second set before being eliminated after an hour and 49 minutes.

Both players lost serve three times in a hard-fought opening set before Raducanu dug deep in game 12 to fend off the set point and force a tiebreak.

But the 19-year-old Brit lost her way and failed to gain a single point as Giorgi forced four mini-breaks to take control and win the opener after an hour and 11 minutes.

Raducanu, who failed to convert the game point for a 5-3 lead in the first set, broke Giorgi’s first service game in the second to lead 2-0.

But Giorgi broke back immediately and reeled off the next five games to face Belgium’s Elise Mertens in the second round.

Earlier, 10th-seeded Coco Gauff had advanced to the second round by beating compatriot Madison Brengle 6-1, 6-3, while Australia’s Ajla Tomljanovic, Spain’s Sara Sorribes Tormo and China’s Qinwen Zheng all progressed.
