Emma Raducanu vs Danka Kovinic: One of the main attractions of Day 2 of the first 1000 WTA event of 2023 will be British no.1 star Emma Raducanu‘s clash against Montenegro’s Danka Kovinic on Thursday (March 9) in the 2023 Indian Wells‘ first round.
The 2021 US Open Grand Slam champion Raducanu is still struggling to find her form this year. And recently she complained about the return of her old wrist injury and even pulled herself out of the pre-Indian Wells doubles exhibition event with Cameron Norrie. At the same time, the 2023 Indian Well’s first round will also be the world number 77’s first match since this year’s Australian Open.
The world number 62 Danka Kovinic crushed Raducanu in three sets at the Australian Open last year. She has lost her last three meetings this year.
