Raducanu, who was making her professional debut at Roland Garros this year, made 33 unforced errors and paid the price for failing to convert five break points in the decisive set’s third game.
Following an 11 a.m. start in the French city, the 19-year-old took the first set 6-3 and appeared to be coping with the windy circumstances, but Sasnovich stamped her force and authority on the match with a spectacular display of shotmaking.
Throughout the three sets, the Belarus star hit 45 winners, breaking Raducanu’s serve five times. “I thought I couldn’t win after the first set, so I just played point by point,” Sasnovich, 28, explained.

Regardless, the adolescent made it to the second round of each of the four majors on her first try. She’ll visit her parents in Kent before beginning the preparations for the grass-court season.
“It’ll be good to be home and play on grass again,” Raducanu added. “I’m excited to compete in front of my home crowd.” I’m not sure what to expect in terms of atmosphere.”

Almost a Catch-22 situation with Emma Raducanu right now. Needs a solid run in a tournament to build fitness and physical resilience, but doesn’t yet have that to get past the opening rounds #RolandGarros
Mike Dickson said,
Disappointing end to what has been a perfectly respectable first clay-court campaign for Emma Raducanu. A 6-5 record on the brown dirt having barely played on it previously, and now on to more helpful grass.
