Watson: 'My game isn't back yet' after Wimbledon loss

British number two Heather Watson has said that recent illness held her back after she was knocked out of Wimbledon by American Madison Keys.

Watson, who suffered from glandular fever earlier this year, said:

I feel like my game isn't back yet.

I don't think I served well today. I didn't have a high first-serve percentage.

My reactions are slow. I'm not moving like I usually move, getting balls back.

I don't feel like my game's there yet, so that will come back with time.

I knew going in it was going to be a tough one - and it was.

– Heather Watson
