Emma Raducanu, the top seed at the Guadalajara Open, was forced to retire after suffering an injury in her first-round match against Daria Saville.

An injury to Emma Raducanu’s hip forced her to retire in the final set of the marathon’s first competitive appearance since she bowed out at the Australian Open.

As the longest match of the WTA season, the No. 1 seed retired after three hours and 36 minutes, with Australia’s Daria Saville advancing 5-7 7-6 (7-4) 4-3.

After winning, Saville said, “I felt like I was myself for the first time in a long time.”. “I was being Dasha, the feisty one. I just want to keep working and keep going.”

In last month’s second round of the Australian Open, Emma Raducanu lost to Danka Kovinic in three sets due to a hand blister.

 In the opener, the British star laid down a marker early, winning after bouncing back from an early break to beat Saville in the final game of the set.

In the second, Emma Raducanu served for the match at 5-3, but Saville broke back to force a tiebreak that she played cleanly to take the set.

With Saville dealing with leg cramps and Emma Raducanu taking an off-court medical break, both women played through the pain in the decider.
