Robson out of Indian Wells


Laura Robson will miss the Indian Wells Masters as she nurses her injured wrist back to fitness.

Britain’s Robson, 20, has been out since her first-round Australian Open defeat to Kirsten Flipkens.

It was later revealed that she had suffered a flare-up of the wrist problem that ruined her winter schedule, but she had been expected to return to action in California.

“I’m happy to report that I continue to progress with my wrist,” Robson said on Facebook.

“But I’m still not ready to compete at the highest levels so I won’t be playing in Indian Wells.”
