Emma Raducanu booked her spot in the quarter-finals of the Transylvania Open by seeing off Ana Bogdan in straight sets on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the 18-year-old secured her first WTA win since her US Open triumph last month, and she followed it up here with a 6-3 6-4 victory over her Romanian opponent, who was playing on home soil. British No1 Raducanu, whose father is Romanian, was forced to fight in the first game in Cluj, saving three break points en route to a battling hold of serve. The second game, however, was much more straightforward for Raducanu, who recorded an early break to love for a 2-0 lead. There was no room for complacency by the Briton, though, and she demonstrated an awareness of that fact by mixing up her play nicely in the third game, kicking off another hold with a tidy serve and volley.

Bogdan finally got on the scoreboard with her own hold for 3-1, making Raducanu miss while also hitting the shot of the match so far – a cross-court backhand winner that found the line. Raducanu then showed some neat net play again in a closely-contested game, punctuating a clinical one-two serve and drive volley combination with a shout after bringing up game point. The teenager would ultimately hold after being pushed and pulled around the court by her opponent's varied shot depth. Bogdan showed further spirit as the set followed serve, until a series of misses by the Romanian handed the first frame to Raducanu, 6-3.

The US Open champion pushed on with an instant break at the start of the second set, which ultimately set her on course for a straight-sets win after 91 minutes on court and set up a quarter-final clash with Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk.

Raducanu, whose father is Romanian, said after that victory: “This means a lot to play in my dad’s country. It is a shame there aren’t fans here, but I hope they were watching and I just wanted to do them proud. I was on a losing streak, so I am really pleased to have come through that.”Next up for Raducanu is Ana Bogdan, who is playing in her home country. The world No406 is pursuing her first WTA trophy, having seen off Ivana Jorovic 7-6 (1) 6-4 in the first round on Tuesday. Awaiting the winner of this match is a quarter-final tie against the Ukraine’s Marta Kostyuk, with the 19-year-old having beaten Mona Barthel in the last round.
