Emma Raducanu handed wild card for next month's Miami Open.

British hopeful Emma Raducanu is among several superstars who have been given wildcard entries into the Miami Open later this month.

The former US Open champion is ranked down at 252 as she continues to work her way back from triple surgery on her wrists and ankle but she has so far been able to rely largely on wild cards to play in high-profile tournaments.

This one is no surprise given the Miami Open is owned and operated by Raducanu’s management company IMG.

She will also hope to play in the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, which begins next week and where last year she reached the fourth round.

Raducanu has played four events so far this year – winning three matches – and headed home to London to train after a first-round loss to Anhelina Kalinina in Doha earlier this month.

The other wild cards announced for Miami are at the other end of the experience spectrum, with 43-year-old Venus Williams and 33-year-old Caroline Wozniacki also given places in the women’s draw, while former US Open finalist Kei Nishikori is set to make his first appearance since July in the men’s event.
