Emma Raducanu looks to build on her impressive run of form as the 21-year-old returns to action in the Madrid Open.

Raducanu shot up 82 places in the WTA rankings after scoring four victories in a row between the Billie Jean Cup and the Stuttgart Open, where the Briton put up a strong performance in her quarter-final defeat to World No 1 Iga Swiatek.

Raducanu will look to continue her displays on clay in the first round of Madrid after being handed a wildcard for the WTA 1000 tournament. The 2021 US Open champion had been drawn against Karolina Pliskova, but will now play Maria Lourdes Carle after the former World No 1 withdrew on Monday.

Lourdes Carle is a qualifier and should Raducanu progress, she will come up against the 17th seed Veronika Kudermetova in the second round.
