Emma Raducanu was playing in the fourth round of Wimbledon in the singles after pulling out of the mixed doubles.

Lulu Sun has caused a stir online in her Wimbledon match against Emma Raducanu as one of her sponsors shares an eerie similarity to Judy Murray's recent remarks about the young British star.

Raducanu was playing for the first time after pulling out of the mixed doubles with Andy Murray on Saturday due to 'stiffness' in her wrist.

Judy Murray appeared to take a swipe at the 21-year-old's decision to pull out of the match in response to a post describing it as 'astonishing'.

"Yes, astonishing," she bluntly wrote.

She later attempted to clarify her comments were meant as 'sarcasm' and suggested the All England Club were to blame for Raducanu's withdrawal.

"Not sure anyone understands sarcasm these days," the 64-year-old said.

"Pretty sure the scheduling (4th match court 1 with a singles following day) will have played a major part in any decision making."

Raducanu was back on the practice courts on Sunday morning ahead of her fourth-round match against New Zealand qualifier Sun on Centre Court and there was no strapping on her wrist.

But the former British No 1 was under threat of a huge upset early on against the 23-year-old after going down a set.

The enthralling match then saw Raducanu take a nail-biting second set and forcing a decider.

Both players were going toe-to-toe with some captivating rallies entertaining the Centre Court crowd.

However, some eagle-eyed viewers spotted one particular sponsor on Sun's outfit that shared a resemblance to Judy Murray's comments from 24 hours ago.

Sun had a blue logo for cleaning company 'Astonish' emblazoned across her chest.

The seemingly unintentional coincidence caused a stir online as more and more caught wind of it.

One eagle-eyed viewer wrote: "Amusing work from whoever was setting up Lulu Sun's patch deals today, albeit almost certainly unintentional."

Another joked: "Yes, astonish(ing)."

A third message read: "Omg #astonishing."

One other person said: "Lulu Sun has 'astonish' across her chest and I for one find this so funny."

Another posted: "Lulu Sun's 'astonish' logo is more conspicuous as she plays Raducanu lol."

Sun didn't have the sponsors on her shirt in her previous rounds at Wimbledon.
