British No. 1 Emma Raducanu will make her comeback in the California-based tournament, which is one of the largest on tour. Indian Wells, which is a combined ATP Masters 1000 and WTA 1000 event, is generally held in March but was postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. Emma Raducanu, the US Open champion, has been given a wildcard into the Indian Wells main draw.
The British No. 1, who earlier this month became the first qualifier in the Open Era to win a Grand Slam singles championship at Flushing Meadows, will make her return at the California-based tournament, which is one of the biggest on tour.
The Indian Wells tournament, which begins next Wednesday, is generally held in March but has been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Raducanu, who won the US Open without dropping a set, is presently 14th in the yearly fight for the eight spots in the year-end WTA Tour finals in Guadalajara, Mexico, in November.
The entry deadline for Indian Wells was previous to her US Open victory, thus the teenager required a wild card to avoid having to play through qualifying.
The 18-year-old broke with coach Andrew Richardson, who coached her to the New York title, claiming a desire to work with someone with more tour-level expertise.
Raducanu has also entered the Kremlin Cup in Moscow and the Transylvania Open in Romania, both of which will take place in October.
