Raducanu handed wild card into Indian Wells – live on Sky Sports Tennis

Emma Raducanu has been handed a wild card into the main draw of next week’s Indian Wells, live on Sky Sports Tennis.

The former US Open champion is ranked down at 252 as she continues to work her way back from triple surgery on her wrists and ankle but she has so far been able to rely largely on wild cards to play in high-profile tournaments.

Raducanu has played four events so far this year – winning three matches – and headed home to London to train after a first-round loss to Anhelina Kalinina in Doha earlier this month.

Having flown out to Los Angeles, the 21-year-old will take part at the prestigious Masters 1000 event, which begins next week and where last year she reached the fourth round.

The Brit, who was given a wild card into next month’s Miami Open on Thursday, has been joined with an invite into the Indian Wells field by 43-year-old Venus Williams and 33-year-old Caroline Wozniacki, plus former world No 1 Karolina Pliskova and 2021 Indian Wells winner Paula Badosa.
