Anastasija Sevastova reaches the 2nd round of Indian Wells for the 6th time in her career as she makes a comeback win over Poland’s Polona Hercog defeating her 3-6, 6-2, 6-0. This is her first tournament on the Tour since her 1st round defeat at the 2021 US Open and ends her streak of 5 tournaments where she faced 1st round exits. The last time she won a 1st round match was at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships.
