Laura Robson and Heather Watson

Laura Robson and Heather Watson both suffered first-round defeats on a bad day for Britain's women at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells.

Romania's Irina-Camelia Begu beat British number one Watson - who failed to convert six break points - 6-2 6-4.

Robson then let a commanding 6-2 4-1 lead slip, as Sweden's Sofia Arvidsson hit back to win 2-6 7-6 (7-2) 6-1.

Andy Murray will return to action when the leading men begin their campaigns at the weekend.
