    RADUCANU ON BREATHING ISSUES

    British teenage sensation Emma Raducanu has spoken for the first time about the breathing difficulties she suffered which forced her to pull out of her last 16 tie earlier this week.

    Speaking to the BBC, she said: "I found it very difficult to regulate my breathing.

    "It was emphasised my some long rallies we had towards the end of the first set which made it tough for me to keep my composure and breathing in check.

    "At the beginning of the second set was when I was struggling with it the most and I called the trainer.

    "I don't know what caused it, I think it was a combination of everything that has gone on behind the scenes and the accumulation of the excitement and the buzz."

    ASH VS ANG

    Ash Barty does not fear Angelique Kerber – but knows she will have to step it up against the 2018 Wimbledon champ in Thursday's semi-final.

    World No1 Barty made the last four by crushing fellow Aussie pal Ajla Tomljanovic – who had overcome Brit sensation Emma Raducanu – 6-1 6-3 in just over an hour.

    Barty, 25, has both won twice and lost twice against Kerber, but this will be their first competitive meeting since they faced off in Wuhan three years ago.

    The queen of Queensland said: “Angie has an incredible record here. She's made multiple finals. She's one of the best grass courters going around.

    “It's not scary or overwhelming, it's just exciting to have the challenge of playing someone who is comfortable on these courts, who knows how to win this tournament.”

    GOOD MORNING TENNIS FANS

    World No1 Ashleigh Barty made the Wimbledon semi-finals by crushing fellow Aussie pal Ajla Tomljanovic – who had overcome British sensation Emma Raducanu – 6-1 6-3 in just over an hour.

    Barty is now set to face off against Angelique Kerber in the final four of the major tennis tournament.

    The Australian star said: “Angie has an incredible record here. She's made multiple finals. She's one of the best grass courters going around.

    “It's not scary or overwhelming, it's just exciting to have the challenge of playing someone who is comfortable on these courts, who knows how to win this tournament.”

    Three-time Slam winner Kerber has returned to top form on the grass after a poor year and was far too good for Czech ace Karolina Muchova, who she beat 6-2 6-3.

    The German, 33, said: “The last few months it was really tough. I never stopped believing in myself, in my team.

    “I'm really looking forward to play against Ash. I know that I have to play my best tennis, and she will push me to that, to give everything out there.”

    Meanwhile, Raducanu explained that she retired from her match with Tomljanovic because she struggled with her breathing and felt dizzy during their fourth-round Wimbledon clash.

    Raducanu tweeted: “Hi guys, I wanted to let everyone know that I’m feeling much better this morning. First up I want to congratulate Ajla on an incredible performance and I’m sorry our match ended the way it did.

    “I was playing the best tennis of my life in front of an amazing crowd this week and I think the whole experience caught up with me. At the end of the first set, after some super intense rallies, I started to breathe heavily and felt dizzy.

    “The medical team advised me not to continue and, although it felt like the hardest thing in the world not to be able to finish my Wimbledon on the court, I was not well enough to carry on.

    “I want to thank the people who have cheered me on every single match, I wanted to win so badly for you! I also want to thank the All England Club, my team, the LTA, my parents and friends.

    “Last night will go a long way to helping me learn what it takes to perform at the top. I will cherish everything we have achieved together this week and come back stronger! Can’t wait to see what’s next on my journey”
