Emma Raducanu vs Aryna Sabalenka: Start time and how to watch Indian Wells

Emma Raducanu faces one of the biggest tests of her career as the 21-year-old meets World No 2 and two-time Australian Open champion Aryna Sabalenka at Indian Wells tonight.

Raducanu returned to the third round in California after her opponent Dayana Yastremska retired injured after just four games on Saturday, with the Briton leading 4-0.

Although Raducanu progressed automatically, it was still the first time she had won back-to-back games since last year’s run at Indian Wells, where she lost to World No 1 Iga Swiatek in the last-16.

Raducanu and Sabalenka have never met before, with the Belarusian losing her opening match in Dubai last month after winning her second Australian Open title in January.
