Emma Raducanu has been knocked out of Indian Wells after losing her round-of-32 tie in three sets to Croatia’s Petra Martic.
The British No 1, who was competing at the tournament for the first time, appeared to be on track for the last 16 after winning the opening set on a tiebreak, 7-3.
Martic hit back in the second set, taking it 6-4 to draw level and then went on to break her opponent’s serve at the start of the decider.
Raducanu appeared to regain control and served for the match at 5-4 – only for the Croatian to win three games in a row and seal the 11th seed’s fate.
