Ill Radwanska determined to play on
Agnieszka Radwanska has confirmed she intends to play in Saturday's Wimbledon final against Serena Williams despite falling ill.
The 23-year-old Polish player pulled out of an anticipated press conference on Friday, and that cast some doubt on whether she would be well enough to face Williams.
However, she is determined to make it to Centre Court to tackle the four-time champion.
Radwanska said in a statement released by the All England Club: "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. 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."
However Radwanska is feeling, four-time champion Williams expects a stiff challenge.
Despite being an overwhelming favourite for the title, sixth seed Williams said: "I have to go out there and win.
"Agnieszka has had a better year than I have. She's been way more consistent than me. She's done really well, so she's ranked higher than me. She deserves to be.
"I have to go out there and fight for this. This is by no means going to be easy. Never, ever do I underestimate any opponent. She's out there to try to do her best. I really like Aga. She's a great girl."
