Emma Raducanu expected to be fit for Wimbledon

BBC Sport says Emma Raducanu is expected to be fit for Wimbledon after a scan showed the injury which forced her to retire at the Nottingham Open was a side strain.

The US Open champion retired just seven games into her first grass-court match of the season in Nottingham on Tuesday.

The injury is not said to be serious, however she will not be able to play in next week’s WTA event in Birmingham.

The 19-year-old has been advised to rest for a few days and is likely to play in Eastbourne the following week.

“It was disappointing to go out this week with a side injury and unfortunately I will no longer be able to play in Birmingham,” Raducanu said.
