Emma Raducanu continues her preparations for Wimbledon with a tough test against Jessica Pegula in Eastbourne.

Raducanu was in impressive form in dispatching fellow US Open winner Sloane Stephens in her opening test on the grass courts of the south coast, surging clear to a straight sets victory (6-4, 6-0).

It continued a promising start to the summer on the surface as the Brit gears up for a return to SW19 next week.

Second seed Pegula should provide another challenge at Devonshire Park with the American riding high after securing a first grass-court title in Berlin earlier in June.
