2021 US Open Champion and rising WTA Tour star Emma Raducanu has been awarded a wild card into the BNP Paribas Open, a combined ATP Masters 1000 and WTA 1000 event to be held from next week at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden.

Raducanu, who stunned the tennis world in Flushing Meadows earlier this month by becoming the first qualifier in the Open Era to win a Grand Slam singles title, will look to continue her dream season during her first-ever trip to Indian Wells.

The 18-year-old British rising star made her WTA Tour debut in June, and quickly gained worldwide attention by advancing to the fourth round at Wimbledon, her first major tournament. At the US Open, Raducanu defeated ten higher-ranked opponents without dropping a set to win the championship, catapulting her more than 100 ranking places up to World No. 22.

The remaining wild card recipients for both singles and qualifying draws will be announced in the coming days.
