Emma Raducanu has been given a walkover to the semi-finals of the Rothesay Open after Fran Jones made the decision to withdraw from the competition due to injury.

Katie Boulter will now take on Raducanu in an all-British affair with both competitors gunning for a spot in the competition’s final in the build-up to Wimbledon starting next month.

Meanwhile, Jones has decided not to risk further injury and has withdrawn from the tournament due to an ongoing shoulder complaint.

The injury relates to a problem with Jones’ right shoulder, with her decision to leave the ongoing competition in Nottingham carefully considered.

Raducanu and Jones were set to take to centre court in Nottingham at 12.15pm today, with the semi-final against Boulter now set to get underway at 3pm.
