Two-time Wimbledon champion Kvitova upset in first round

Share

It is Sharapova's first Grand Slam opening-round loss since she fell to another Russian, 58th-ranked Maria Kirilenko, 7-6 (4) 3-6 6-4, in the first round of the 2010 Australian Open.

It was also her first appearance on grass in that time, having pulled out of competing in Birmingham last month.

Vikhlyantseva was beaten in straight sets in the first round at Eastbourne by Hsieh Su-Wei, the Chinese Taipei player Konta dropped only four games against in the first round at Wimbledon previous year.

A break point for Konta came and went in the seventh game, the 27-year-old slipping on the baseline as Vikhlyantseva's forehand wrong-footed her.

After sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov was sent packing on Monday, it was the turn of French Open runner-up Dominic Thiem and Belgium's David Goffin to pack their bags. I think I'm becoming tougher and tougher in matches. I just made a joke that probably I going to skip the Grand Slams for the next years.

"Kept doing that in the third, as well".

"When you win Wimbledon, I think it's winning the best tournament".

That was the case today. "I've made a lot of progress in the last few months".

"It's always tough to assess your motivation levels after a first round loss but I won't shy away from learning from my errors", said 31-year-old Sharapova.

Kvitova might feel the same.

Diatchenko received rapturous applause for her underdog fightback but the court rippled with disappointment that Sharapova had not been able to grasp the nettle.

"I'm sad. I wanted to win very badly, maybe too much".

Indeed Kvitova has mostly sparkled this year in what has been a stunning turnaround - except at the majors.

Bouchard said plenty of Canadians were behind her on Tuesday. Probably Japanese people would kill me if I say that! Ostapenko has not played well all year, especially in the Slams, so I sense an upset here. If this match was played on any other surface, I would give Stosur the edge to win. "You know, to be back in a grand slam is always hard, so I'm excited with the way I'm playing".

After waiting so long for a player capable of going deep into a championship, British tennis fans were rigid in their appraisal; she is one of our own. But it's just not really working for me right now.

Sasnovich - a bubbly Belorussian - began the season in impressive fashion, making a final in Brisbane.

Flipkens is a bit of a tricky opponent, and if Ostapenko plays the same way as in her opening match she won't win this one.

Ostapenko should have done much better in her first round and struggled against a player outside the top 200.

But Konta could feel very satisfied when she surveyed the destruction of the women's draw, with four of the top eight seeds failing to make it through the first round. However, Nadal failed to reach beyond the 4th round since 2011.

The 36-year-old broke the record for straight Slams which was previously held by Roger Federer. On a double fault. She has the momentum and belief at the moment, I expect her to push through. "I'm going to watch this attractive match at 7", he added, referring to England's game against Colombia that started at 7 p.m. "World Cup continues without us".

The Romanian got off to a good start by dispatching Japan's Kurumi Nara 6-2 6-4.

Play is under way on Day 2 at Wimbledon.

The world number 132 battled back to win 6-7 (3-7) 7-6 (7-3) 6-4.

Novak Djokovic, the resurgent 12-time grand slam victor, thumped Tennys Sandgren 6-3 6-1 6-2.

Across on Centre Court, Naomi Broady, 138 in the world, had the experience of her career, her first time on Centre Court-because she was drawn against one of the favourites for the title, the defending champion, Garbine Muguruza.
