Former US Open champion Emma Raducanu shrugged off injury concerns to beat German Tamara Korpatsch 6-3, 6-2 and reach the second round of the Australian Open at Melbourne Park on Monday.

The 20-year-old had injured her ankle in Adelaide 10 days ago to start her season on an unlucky note. But the Brit, who said she had worked hard with her team to get in shape for the match, appeared to be untroubled by the injury during the one hour and 26 minute encounter.

The win sets up a blockbuster second round showdown against 18-year-old Coco Gauff, the No 7 seed, next. The American scored a straight sets win over Katerina Siniakova in straight sets in the first match on Rod Laver Arena.
