Andrew Fitzpatrick, Naomi Broady's coach, was not happy with Garbine Muguruza's withdrawal a few minutes before entering the court. 'Circus...', tweeted Fitzpatrick, who was angry because the supervisor decided to nominee a lucky loser, Varvara Lepchenko, to face Broady.
The match was played on Court 1 instead that on Central Court, where the encounter between Muguruza and Broady was originally scheduled.
'I'm pretty disappointed - said Muguruza through a statement - I practiced a lot for this tournament.
Circus .. — Andrew Fitzpatrick (@Fitzmister) 26 luglio 2016
Since yesterday, I have been feeling weird and I spoke with the doctor and everything. I thought today I was going to feel better, but in the last moment I didn't feel good enough to go on court and give my best.'Muguruza retired due to a gastroenteretis.
