Emma Raducanu was a no-show for a scheduled Wimbledon practice session on Friday afternoon, sparking fears of an injury setback. The Briton has not played since having to retire just seven games into her first match at the Nottingham Open on June 7 due to a side problem and she did not attend a hitting session with Garbine Muguruza.

Raducanu was due to practice with the Spaniard on Court No 1 at 2.15pm on Friday but did not appear. Raducanu was spotted heading away from the court shortly before the session was due to take place and was said to look downbeat per The Times.

The worrying news comes just a few hours after Raducanu learned she would face Alison van Uytvanck, who has won two titles on grass this summer, in the first round of Wimbledon next week.
