Britain’s Emma Raducanu was beaten in straights sets by Belarusian world number two Aryna Sabalenka in the third round at Indian Wells.

Raducanu, who reached the fourth round in California last year, lost 6-3 7-5 to two-time major winner Sabalenka as she continues her comeback.

The 21-year-old, ranked 250 in the world, was a wildcard at the tournament following an injury-disrupted 2023. “It was a good success, I would say,” Raducanu said of her week.

“I think I have handled myself a lot better on the match court. I was a lot more positive and hungry to play, and that showed I think in the tennis that I did play.”
