Harriet Dart has joined fellow Britons Emma Raducanu and Katie Boulter in the main draw of the Madrid Open.

Dart, 27, beat Russia's Maria Timofeeva in her second qualifying match.

The British number two fought back from a set down to earn a 4-6 6-3 7-5 victory and will face Spain's Cristina Bucsa in the first round.

Raducanu will meet Argentine qualifier Maria Lourdes Carle in her first-round encounter on Wednesday.

The 21-year-old was set to play Karolina Pliskova in the opening round, but the former world number one pulled out of the tournament because of a wrist injury.

British number one Boulter, 27, will miss the first round and will meet the winner of the match between American wildcard Robin Montgomery and Russia's Elina Avanesyan in the second.

In the men's draw, Britain's Jack Draper, 22, will face qualifier Thanasi Kokkinakis on Wednesday but Dan Evans, 33, has withdrawn with a right calf injury.
