Emma Raducanu to remain British No.1 after Harriet Dart crashes out of US Open

Emma Raducanu has clung onto her British No.1 spot after Harriet Dart lost to Dalma Galfi 6-4 6-0 in the US Open second round.

Dart’s defeat means there are no British players remaining in the women’s singles at Flushing Meadows after 11th-seed Raducanu was shocked by France’s world No.40 Alize Cornet in the first round in a disappointing end to her title defence.
