Swan explains Wimbledon retirement
- From the section Tennis
Bristol-born Katie Swan tells BBC Points West a shin injury forced her to withdraw from her first-round match in the girls' singles at Wimbledon.
The 17-year-old, who lives and trains in the USA, was trailing 6-5 to Georgia's Mariam Bolkvadze when she called the trainer and subsequently retired.
"I've been struggling with this injury for a few weeks and have been managing it," Swan said.
