Last year’s Wimbledon women’s tennis final was eliminated

Although Pliskova won the first set, her opponent did not break and turned around and advanced.

Karolina Pliskova, last year’s finalist, lost the women’s competition at Wimbledon in the second round. The sixth-seeded Czech tennis player lost to Katie Poulter, who was playing in front of the host crowd, on the center court from a specific deficit.

World number 1 Swiatek and two-time Roland Garros champion won her 37th match in a row, after defeating Leslie Patinama Kerkhove of the Netherlands in three matches.

Among the men, fourth-seeded Greek Stefanos Tsitsipas advanced, and he will meet Nick Kyrgios in the round of 32. However, 12th seed Argentine Diego Schwartzman and 13th-ranked Canadian Denis Shapovalov were bid farewell: the former lost to a British competitor, and the latter to an American competitor.
