2022 Indian Wells WTA scores: Round of 32

AS part of the Indian Wells WTA 1000 Masters coverage, we will be adding the Round of 32 scores all in one place, as well as some highlighted matches from the day.


Australian qualifier Daria Saville has continued her remarkable run at Indian Wells to reach the fourth round of the WTA Tour event. Ranked outside the Top 400 now, the former Top 20 talent is on the road back up the rankings, competing overseas for the first time since the 2020 Roland Garros event. Having toppled Top 10 talent Ons Jabeur in the second round, Saville has now surged past Belgian 20th seed Elise Mertens in three tough sets 6-3 4-6 6-3. Returning from Achilles surgery having had an interrupted last few years, Saville’s decision to come to Indian Wells has proved a masterstroke after 10 months on the sidelines in rehabilitation.

“I was a bit nervous before this trip because I haven’t [traveled overseas] in two and a half years,” Saville said to the WTA Tour website. “Because even when I came back the first time, I only played in Australia and then I had the surgery, so I didn’t really travel.

“I wasn’t feeling confident at all. I didn’t play well at all in Australia. So I was like, ‘What am I doing? Why would I even go anywhere now?'”

Remarkably, landing in the fourth round has already boosted her ranking 160 spots to move up to 249th in the world. If she can continue her giant-killing run against sixth seed Maria Sakkari in the Round of 16, she will move up to 174th in the world.
