Emma Raducanu will look to get back to winning ways when she takes on Spain’s Rebeka Masarova in the first round of the Indian Wells Open.

The former US Open looked out of sorts in her last outing in February, losing 6-0 7-6 to Anhelina Kalinina in the first round of the Qatar Open. The Brit has endured mixed fortunes since her return from wrist and ankle surgery last year, winning three of the seven matches she has competed in.

The 21-year-old, who earlier in the week said she is currently focused on performances rather than results, received a wildcard invite to this year’s Indian Wells Open having reached the fourth round last year.

Her tournament in the Californian desert begins with a first-round clash against World No 96 Masarova, who knocked out fellow Brit Heather Watson in qualifying to reach the first-round proper.
