Emma Raducanu got her Wimbledon 2022 campaign off to an ideal start with an impressive first-round victory.
The Briton announced herself on the biggest stage at last year’s Championships before losing to Ajla Tomljanovic in the fourth round.
Still, the 19-year-old used the experience gained in SW19 to propel her to a historic Grand Slam victory at the US Open in September.
Raducanu’s rise in rankings on her return to Wimbledon saw her make her center court debut in the first round this week.
And the teenager did not disappoint, as she got the better of the experienced Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck, winning 6-4 6-4.

Emma Raducanu: Who is Caroline Garcia?
The French star is used to playing a favorite at home, having beaten Britain’s Yuriko Miyazaki 4-6, 6-1, 7-6 (10-4) in the first round.
However, support for Raducanu will be on a different level, who won his first and only meeting earlier this year.
In a showdown at Indian Wells, Raducanu toppled Garcia, 28, 6-1, 3-6, 6-1.
Garcia recently clinched her eighth career title at the Bad Homburg Open after a tough run in recent years after being world No. 4.
Emma Raducanu’s next match: What was said?
Raducanu“I’m extremely happy to have gotten through this game and I can’t wait to play in front of you guys again.
“I’ve felt it (the crowd support) ever since I walked into the training grounds, people behind me saying, ‘Emma, you got that’. And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ have that’.
“I’m so happy to stay one more day.”
Facing a home crowd, Garcia said: “You know, when I play at Roland-Garros, it’s kind of the same the other way around – you know what’s going to happen, and I think that’s absolutely fair.
“You’re not going to complain about that.
“Most of the time in tennis I think the Brits are ‘nice’. Obviously they want the British player to win, but they are always fair and respectful. Normally I don’t have anything to say about that. C It is completely normal that they encourage the player of their country.
“It’s going to be my first match on center court, and it’s always a pleasure to play on the big courts at the Grand Slams, and Wimbledon is very special. The roof is definitely good news.
“At least you know you’re going to play and you don’t have to wait. It’s going to be a great atmosphere.
“It was the first time I played against her a few months ago [at Indian Wells], and she’s a brand new player, so you don’t know much about her. She does it her own way and does very well.
“I’m going to have to play my game, try to be aggressive. She played well last year here, so she likes the grass court at Wimbledon, but it’s a good game to play.
