Emma Raducanu unleashed her Romanian half to tell the locals she loves them after picking up her first win since her US Open title at the Transylvanian Open.  

Before charming an almost empty stadium by speaking in Romanian she defeated experienced Slovenian Polona Hercog 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 to make the second round, in which she will face Ana Bogdan. 

'It means a lot to play in my Dad's country,' she said after completing a win in two hours and 28 minutes.

Raducanu then tweeted after the game: 'super happy to get my first ever WTA win today. Multumesc mult si, te iubesc.'

The Romanian part of the tweet, translated, reads: 'Thank you very much and I love you.'
