She handled the challenge with astonishing ease, building on her demolition of Williams with an even more destructive performance. Raducanu defeated Victoria Azarenka 6-0, 6-2 in 62 minutes to advance to the third round on her Cincinnati debut.

While acknowledging the importance of savouring these moments against players she had grown up watching win grand slams, Raducanu stated that she went into both matches completely believing in herself

I just had to concentrate on what I could control, and in the points, you can't think about who's on the other end of the court," she explained. "All you have to do is play the ball."

This week, Raducanu stated her intention to avoid getting "too low or too high" after a year in which either her exuberance or negativity did not help her unlock her best tennis.

Raducanu has competed in two tournaments with coach Dmitry Tursunov since beginning their trial period at the Citi Open, and things are clearly going well. She's improved dramatically in their two events together, winning each match in a row.

I think that following the competition, I'll need to step back and realise that I had just defeated two incredible champions. It's a respectable accomplishment. You are aware of how difficult it is to win, she said.
