Laura Robson

Laura Robson has played only three Grand Slams in the past two years

Laura Robson has been beaten in her first WTA Tour match since August, losing 7-6 6-2 to Magdalena Rybarikova at the BNP Paribas Open in the USA.

The 22-year-old, who last played at the US Open, has struggled with a wrist injury over the past 18 months.

Robson held her own in the first set in Indian Wells, with both players breaking three times, but the Russian world number 97 won in 90 minutes.

The Briton has not won a WTA main-draw match since September 2013.
