WIMBLEDON, England (AP) -- Wimbledon finalist Agnieszka Radwanska canceled a news conference Friday because of a respiratory illness that made it difficult for her to speak.

Radwanska is scheduled to meet four-time Wimbledon champion Serena Williams for the title Saturday.

Radwanska played with the ailment Thursday, when she beat Angelique Kerber 6-3, 6-4 and became the first Polish player to reach a Grand Slam final since 1939. Her news conference after the match was cut short when she had a coughing fit, and her media session Friday was canceled shortly before it was scheduled to begin.

A WTA spokesman said she was having trouble talking.

Radwanska pulled out of women's doubles shortly before a match Wednesday because of the illness.
