Radwanska in health scareAgence France-Presse . London
Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska insists she will be fit to face Serena Williams for the women’s title on Saturday despite suffering a health scare on Friday which caused her to cancel a scheduled news conference.
After pulling out of her pre-final interview session, Radwanska confirmed she is fighting breathing problems and has been struggling to talk.
‘Unfortunately I have picked up upper respiratory illness, it’s affecting my nose and throat,’ she said.
But the world number three’s coach Tomasz Wiktorowski expects the Pole to recover in time for the biggest match of her life.
‘She’s still sick, we’re trying to do the best to bring her back to health for the match,’ Wiktorowski told BBC Radio Five Live.
‘As you know what can we do? With the anti-doping policy we have to obey all the rules. We can’t use all the medications in the shops. We can just use garlic, hot tea with honey, aspirin...nothing else.
‘I think the worst day was during the quarter-final for sure. That was the worst day and the night. She is getting better but very slowly. She is very strong girl it is not such a big problem. To retire and cancel the final...not at all.’
