British tennis player Tara Moore was stretchered off the court after she fell unconscious during her second-round match against compatriot Laura Robson at the ITF $25K event in Landisville.

It happened so after Moore was forced to retire at 7-5 3-4 in the match, when her condition deteriorated, alarming the officials to rush her to an ambulance.

Although the exact reason behind the occurrence is unclear, it’s is believed that Moore fell prey to heat exhaustion on court, reports Eurosport.

Meanwhile, Moore has been in the midst of her career-best season. The 24-year-old enjoyed a dream grass-court swing, reaching the finals in Easbourne, before going all the way from the qualifiers to make the quarter-finals in Nottingham.

The current World No. 192 is 39-20 this year.
