Emma Raducanu: US Open champion given Indian Wells wildcard

Emma Raducanu is the first British woman in 44 years to win a Grand Slam

Britain’s US Open champion Emma Raducanu has been given a wildcard into the Indian Wells main draw.

Although she is now ranked 22 in the world, the entry list for Indian Wells was published during the US Open, when she was outside the top 100.

The tournament, one of the biggest outside of the Grand Slams, takes place in California from 4-17 October.

Raducanu has also entered tournaments in Russia and Romania in October.

She could still qualify for the year-end WTA Finals in Guadalajara.

Raducanu is currently 14th in the race to reach the event, needing just under 400 points to reach the top eight and qualify.

World number one Ashleigh Barty withdrew from Indian Wells earlier in the week.
