Britain’s Emma Raducanu has withdrawn from the Miami Open with a lower back injury – but her management company say the issue is “nothing serious”.

The 21-year-old was due to face China’s Wang Xiyu in the first round on Tuesday.

However, she does not want to risk aggravating the injury by playing in the tournament in the United States.

It is a blow to Raducanu’s comeback following an injury-disrupted 2023 season.

The 2021 US Open champion was beaten in straight sets by world number two Aryna Sabalenka in the third round at Indian Wells last week.
