London:

Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska, who faces Serena Williams for the women's title on Saturday, suffered a health scare on Friday when she cancelled a scheduled news conference.

The third-seeded Pole was fighting breathing problems and was struggling to talk, according to a WTA spokesman.

Radwanska, the first Polish Grand Slam finalist for 73 years, had to cut short her media duties on Thursday after beating Angelique Kerber 6-3, 6-4 in the Wimbledon semi-finals.

The 23-year-old -- a Wimbledon junior champion in 2005 -- was so badly troubled by a cough during the 10-minute session that she had to call a premature halt to proceedings after several sips of water failed to ease the problem.
