Raducanu, 18, was catapulted to fame when she became the first qualifier ever to win a major title when she captured the women’s crown in New York last month.
The Canadian-born starlet – who has a Chinese mother and Romanian father but has lived in the UK since the age of two – has been tipped for stellar sporting and financial success given her winsome smile and cross-cultural attraction.
Following her defeat under the lights, Raducanu claimed the loss was part of her learning curve in what was only her fifth appearance at a WTA tour-level event.
“Playing at night is always going to be different,” Raducanu said.
“I haven’t had much experience with night matches. I’ve only played one before on Ashe [at the US Open].”
“I’m still very, very new to the tour. I think that experience just comes from playing week in, week out and experiencing all these different things.
“I’m kind of glad that what happened today happened so I can learn and take it as a lesson so going forward I’ll just have more experienced banked.”
As the first British woman to win a major singles title in 44 years, Raducanu was feted in the UK after her triumph at Flushing Meadows, gracing fashion magazine covers and attending numerous glitzy events.
The teen hinted she was still coming to terms with the spotlight after she fell to Sasnovich – a former world top 30 player and someone with significantly more experience on tour.
