INDIAN WELLS: Emma Raducanu, Simona Halep and Iga Swiatek all came out on the winning side of three set matches while Danka Kovinic upset former world number one Karolina Pliskova in second round action at Indian Wells on Friday.

Raducanu’s 6-1 3-6 6-1 victory is the Briton’s first at the WTA 1000 event as she looks to get her season on track after falling in the second round at the Australian Open and retiring in Guadalajara with injury.

The U.S. Open champion came out hot in the Southern Californ desert, playing nearly flawless tennis to take the first set before Garcia responded with more power in the second.

After exchanging breaks to begin the decider, Raducanu won the final five games to seal the win on a sunny day on Stadium One.

“It’s amazing to be back and it’s amazing to get my first win in the desert here,” the 19-year-old Raducanu said in an on-court interview before a supportive crowd.
“I hope to come back for many years.”
