Emma Raducanu says the “whole experience caught up” with her but she is “feeling better” after retiring from her fourth-round Wimbledon match against Ajla Tomljanovic on Monday.

The 18-year-old Briton said she “started to breathe heavily and felt dizzy” after the first set and was advised by medics not to continue.

She described not being able to carry on as “the hardest thing in the world”.

“I was not well enough to carry on,” Raducanu wrote on Twitter.

Raducanu was trailing 4-6 0-3 to Australia’s Tomljanovic when she became unwell, leaving the court before it was announced she would not be returning.

A statement released after her retirement said she had suffered breathing difficulties, but did not go into any further detail.

Radacanu said on Tuesday she began to feel ill after some “super intense rallies” during the first set.

“I wanted to win so badly for you!” she wrote.
