UK, Bollywood Fever: Home-country favorite Emma Raducanu stunned No. 2 seed Jessica Pegula 4-6, 7-6 (6), 7-5 to move into the quarterfinals of the Rothesay International in Eastbourne, England, on Wednesday.

For Raducanu, who won the 2021 U.S. Open, this victory marks her first win over a top 10 player. Pegula, ranked No. 5 in the world, recently won the championship on the grass courts in Berlin last week.

Neither player could capitalize on her serve, with Pegula scoring on only 63 percent of her first serves compared to Raducanu’s 66 percent in the two-hour, 42-minute match. Both players broke serve six times, but the pivotal moment came in the second-set tiebreaker. Raducanu fended off a match point at 6-5 and went on to take the set.
