Third seeded Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland, who became the first Polish woman to reach a grand slam final since Jadwiga Jedrzejowska at the 1939 French Open, has fallen ill before the ladies Wimbledon 2012 final.
She said "Unfortunately I have picked up an upper respiratory illness, which is affecting my nose and throat. I have been playing a lot of matches here in the rain and cold wind, and I haven't been well for a few days. The most important thing is that I'm feeling good on the court and playing some good tennis, despite not being able to talk much away from the court."
She added "The priority is my singles match tomorrow, so I will do whatever it takes to make sure I'm ready to play the best I can. It was unfortunate that the illness meant I had to withdraw from doubles. Of course, it is always a good sign to be playing singles and doubles in the second week of a Grand Slam, but I wasn't able to continue in both events."
"As everyone could see yesterday, I wasn't able to complete my press conference." she continued. "I was really hoping that I would have improved overnight so I could come in to finish my press today, but unfortunately I can't speak for very long, and so I have done as much as I can do today. I'm very sorry about that."
Radwanska is scheduled to face Serena Williams in the ladies Wimbledon final today.
