arta Kostyuk fought off her teenage colleague Emma Raducanu in just 57 minutes to end the Briton’s run to the Transylvanian Open.

The youngsters both indicated a very bright future for women’s football ahead of their meeting, but there was only one winner after the Ukrainian broke her opponent’s serve on five occasions.

Raducanu had edged Polona Hercog and passed Ana Bogdan to organize the quarter-finals, her first victories since her superb triumph at the US Open in September.
