Emma Raducanu, the US Open champion from Britain, has been granted a wildcard to the Indian Wells main draws.

This will be the 18 year-old's first tournament after her incredible victory in New York earlier in the month.

Although she is currently ranked 22 worldwide, Indian Wells' entry list was created during the US Open when she was not in the top 100.

This tournament is one of the largest outside of Grand Slams and takes place in California between 4-17 October.

Raducanu also participated in tournaments in Russia, Romania and other countries in October.

She may still be eligible for the Guadalajara year-end WTA Finals.

Raducanu currently sits at 14th place in the race for the event. To qualify, Raducanu must have just 400 points.

Ashleigh Barty, world number one, resigned from Indian Wells earlier this week.
