No Indian Wells action for Robson
February 27, 2014 09:49:11 UK
British number one Laura Robson will not be taking part in next month's BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells as she has still not fully recovered from a wrist injury.
The 20-year-old has been troubled by the injury for some time and has only completed one full match in 2014 - at the Australian Open.
She said: "I'm happy to report that I continue to progress with my wrist. But I'm still not ready to compete at the highest levels so I won't be playing in Indian Wells."
Meanwhile, Andy Murray set up a quarter-final clash against Gilles Simon by beating Joao Sousa 6-3 6-4 at the Mexican Open.

It was once again not all plain-sailing for last year's Wimbledon champion though. He recovered after losing the first five games of his first-round contest against Pablo Andujar before winning in straight sets and was broken early on in his second-round encounter with Sousa.
However, Murray once again recovered well to book his place in the quarter-finals, and said afterwards: "He started the match coming to the net a lot, playing very aggressive which I hadn't seen him do before, so that was a bit unexpected.
"But I started to pick up my depth a little bit - I was hitting the ball better as the first set went on and I created a lot of chances for myself.
"So in the second set I could have maybe made it a little bit easier on myself because it was a tough finish. He played a good last game to make it hard to serve it out but it was a good match."
Murray is 1.72 to win the Mexican Open outright and 1.44 to beat Simon in straight sets.
