Emma Raducanu will compete in her first match since the US Open final

Emma Raducanu will compete in her first match since winning the US Open at the Indian Wells on Friday.

Her first grand slam win, in which she didn’t drop a set all tournament, has propelled the 18-year-old into the limelight. She defeated Leylah Fernandez in September and has since been to the Met Gala and amassed a huge social media following.

Raducancu now turns her attention back to tennis as she takes on Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the second round of the Indian Wells after being given a bye for the first round.

The Brit will have her eyes on the prize as she has said she is “hungry” for more trophies.

She said: “I think the level and quality, I really realised that whilst re-watching it. It was such a cool experience and sometimes you do just rewind and relive the moment and the feelings.

“It’s great to reflect and have that so gradually it sort of sinks in. I am just super proud of the achievement. I am now looking forward. I am not going to cling on to that. I am still hungry for more.”

But when is the match and how can fans watch? Here’s all you need to know.

When is it?

The match will take place on 8 October at 6pm in California or 2am BST on 9 October.

Where can I watch?

Who are the pundits?
