Voted as BBC Sports Personality of the Year and on the comeback from a Covid-19 infection, Raducanu is making her first ever appearance at the Australian Open.
Who is Emma Raducanu playing next?
Since her famous victory in America just four short months ago, Raducanu has gone from a virtual unknown to a household name.
Her form has been up and down since that victory, with the Brit losing four of her six matches since beating fellow teenager Leylah Fernandez in September's final.
She looked out of sorts in her comeback against Elena Rybakina on January 11, losing in straight-sets and winning just one game.
But after getting a tough draw against Sloane Stephens in round one, the British No1 found her rhythm and cruised through 6-0, 2-6, 6-1.
Raducanu will now head into round two, with her next match scheduled for Thursday, January 20.
She will face Montenegro's Danka Kovinic who beat Jang Su-jeong in the first round.
The start time for the match is yet to be confirmed, but check back to SunSport for all the latest.
