Great Britain’s Emma Raducanu is out of the Korea Open after retiring injured from her semi-final against top seed Jelena Ostapenko.

The 19-year-old took a medical timeout during the second set as she struggled with a left glute injury.

She carried on as Ostapenko claimed the second set but conceded the match to the Latvian at 4-6 6-3 3-0.

Ostapenko will face second seed Ekaterina Alexandrova of Russia, who beat Germany’s Tatjana Maria 6-2 6-4.
