Britain’s Emma Raducanu continued her return to form with a straight-set win over the 20th seed Magda Linette in the second round at Indian Wells.

Raducanu, 20, shrugged off illness and a recurring wrist injury to beat Danka Kovinic in the first round on Thursday.

The 2021 US Open champion trailed Poland’s Linette 4-1 in the first set but rallied to win it on a tie-break.

The world number 77 then eased through the second set to clinch a 7-6 (7-3) 6-2 win.
