Great Britain’s Emma Raducanu has reached a WTA semifinal for the first time since her stunning run to the US Open title in 2021. The British No.1 rocked past Poland’s Magda Linette, 6-2, 6-2, to set up a semifinal encounter with top-seeded Jelena Ostapenko at the Hana Bank Korea Open.

Raducanu was thrilled to get past the No.3 seed, who struggled with a right thigh issue in the middle set and after.

"I think Magda was feeling it a bit physically," Raducanu said afterwards, via "She's had a lot of matches and good wins because she's a really tough player, and sometimes it catches up with the body. I think it's pretty cool to make my first semifinal and build my way on tour the right way, to go through the stages."

Raducanu improves to 17-17 on the season and has won three matches in succession for the first time in 2022.

Ostapenko defeated 17-year-old Victoria Jiminez Kasintseva, 6-2, 6-1, to take her spot in the final.
