Participation list del torneo
good news Emma Raducanu, who has already secured her place in the WTA Indian Wells draw after receiving a Wild Card to host the tournament in California. Currently ranked in the Top 80, the British tennis player has been looking to find some consistency in his tennis and thus climb back up the rankings in addition to being a serious title contender at every tournament he enters.
At the beginning of the year, Raducanu injured her ankle in the second round of the WTA Auckland, had to drop out and arrived at the Australian Open in bad shape. Nevertheless, she managed to beat Germany’s Tamara Korpatsch in a good performance on her debut in Melbourne, before losing to Coco Gauff, but left with positive feelings.
His tenure at Indian Wells
Raducanu was in the desert for the first time in October 2021, just weeks after winning the historic US Open. That year, the Brit also entered by invitation, in addition to eventually finishing at No. 17. In the second round, he lost to Aliaksandra Sasnovich of Belarus.
In the 2022 version, the result was not much better, although they managed to win the match. Starting in 11th place, Emma defeated France’s Caroline Garcia in three sets before losing to Croatia’s Petra Martic in the third round. In this new return to Indian Wells, at least reaching that stage already looks like a good deal for the British, in a completely different situation than last year.
