Top-seeded Barbora Krejcikova has pulled out of this week’s BNP Paribas Open a daw after the draw was released. The second-ranked Czech is dealing with an elbow issue.

"I am extremely disappointed and sad to withdraw from the BNP Paribas Open. I was looking forward to playing in Indian Wells very much but unfortunately I won't be able to do so this year,” Krejcikova said.

Krejcikova’s withdrawal means that the tournament will be without the WTA’s top two-ranked players. France’s Alizé Cornet slips into Krejcikova’s spot in the main draw.
