Emma Raducanu will aim to continue her promising grass-court form ahead of Wimbledon next week as she takes on sixth seed Daria Kasatkina in the quarter-finals at the Eastbourne International this afternoon.

Raducanu secured her first-ever victory against a top-10 player when she downed Jessica Pegula in the second round on Wednesday, saving a match point en route to a remarkable 4-6 7-6 7-5 win in almost three hours in sweltering conditions.

Toppling world No 5 Pegula followed a stunning first-round win over fellow former US Open champion Sloane Stephens, where she surged clear to a straight sets victory (6-4, 6-0).

And the 21-year-old wildcard was delighted to come through such a tricky encounter on the grass, saying: “It’s incredibly difficult when you’re playing someone who’s so in-form like Jessica. But I’m really pleased with how I managed to navigate against some really tough situations and I didn’t think to be honest I’d be able to get myself out of it, so I would say this match is one of the more meaningful ones to me. I think I’ve been going through some stuff and to come through it has been really nice.”
