At a news conference on Wednesday, Errani continued to blame food contamination and said that she would return "stronger than ever" and that "it's a difficult situation" for her family "but we have managed to be even more united so I'm proud of them", reports Sport24.

The former world number five also said, "I know I have done nothing wrong."
