Indian Wells: Venus Williams and Caroline Wozniacki handed wildcards | Tennis News

Grand Slam champions Venus Williams and Caroline Wozniacki have been awarded wildcards to play in the Indian Wells tournament next month, live on Sky Sports

Williams, a seven-time Grand Slam champion, has not played since suffering an early exit from last year’s US Open after a humbling defeat by qualifier Greet Minnen in the first round.

The 43-year-old American and former world No 1 will return to Indian Wells for the first time since 2019, when she reached the quarter-finals.

Wozniacki, 33, made a comeback to the circuit last year after a three-year break following the births of her two children. She reached the fourth round of the US Open, where she lost to eventual champion Coco Gauff, and made it to the second round of the Australian Open last month.
