A stacked 32-player draw peppered with top-10 performers meant there was never likely to be such a thing as an easy first round in Stuttgart this year, and Raducanu duly found herself up against former French Open champion Ostapenko.

As can happen with the Latvian, she can blow hot and fire off winner after winner, as she showed. The British player lacked the tools to resist and was overpowered, but the level of Ostapenko’s ball-striking should lend some perspective to the result.
