Emma Raducanu a doubt for Indian Wells

Following her withdrawal in the first round on the Abierto Akron Zapopan two weeks ago, there is still doubt concerning the participation of US Open champion Emma Raducanu at the BNP Paribas Open Indian Wells, which kicks off on March 9.

The 19-year old, who just signed a partnership deal with Vodafone to serve as the ambassador for Play Your Way To Wimbledon, suffered a left hip injury during her opening round match against Daria Saville in Guadalajara. This forced her to skip last week's event in Monterrey, and there is now concern that she may miss Indian Wells.

The World No.13 is due to keep her place in the women’s draw and the Bromley local has travelled to California and has allegedly been training well during her recovery but it’ll only be certain once she steps onto court.

Even if she feels ready for the opening round, there is no telling whether she’ll make progress in the competition or make her injuries worse and be forced to pull out of yet another match.

“My main goal is to see improvements in my game and look back knowing I’ve got better in certain areas,” said Raducanu.

“It’s my first year on tour so I’m very excited to have a full schedule and I’m sure I will have learned a lot by the end of the year.”
