Emma Raducanu will be fit for Wimbledon after a scan revealed her side strain suffered yesterday is not serious. The US Open champion was forced to pull out of the Rothesay Open Nottingham after only seven games because of the injury.

But although the British No.1 needs rest and will miss the event in Birmingham next week, she is now planning to play in Eastbourne the week before Wimbledon. The grasscourt Grand Slam, where the Bromley teenager reached the fourth round last year, starts on June 27.

Raducanu said: “It was disappointing to go out this week with a side injury and unfortunately I will no longer be able to play in Birmingham. I’m looking forward to being back on the match court soon though to enjoy the rest of the grass season.”
