Emma Raducanu cruised through her second-round meeting with Elise Mertens in straight sets at Wimbledon.

While she was put to the test in the first round, Raducanu made little fuss as she earned a 6-1 6-2 victory on Court 1.

Raducanu won the first five games of first set, but even after dropping one, she saved a break point to take the opener.

She went on another impressive five-game win streak in the second, with Mertens unable to launch any real counter against the Brit, who was in fine form.

Next up for Raducanu is either Arantxa Rus or Maria Sakkari in the next round.

Data Debrief: Raducanu maintains her high level

Raducanu described her first round victory as "winning ugly" but that was not the case on Wednesday.

Since 2000, the 21-year-old (17-7) is one of only two British female players with a winning record (playing a minimum of five matches) at grand slam events, along with Johanna Konta (39-29).

She is also the third British player in the Open Era to hold a winning percentage of 70% or higher in Women’s Singles Grand Slam matches (70.8%), along with Ann Jones (85.3%) and Virginia Wade (71.3%).

Raducanu is now just one round away from matching her best result at Wimbledon, having reached the fourth round in 2021.
