Djokovic into Wimbledon third round for 11th year in a row

Djokovic into Wimbledon third round for 11th year in a row

Three-time major champion Stan Wawrinka, however, will not be joining them as he was ousted by unseeded Reilly Opelka of the United States 7-5, 3-6, 4-6, 6-4, 8-6.

Former finalist Milos Raonic is through to the third round of Wimbledon for the sixth year in a row. The No. 19 seed scored his first Grand Slam main draw win on Monday over fellow Canadian Vasek Pospisil.

A win for her would have made it just the fourth time in 2019 she's made it past the second round of a tournament in 13 attempts.

"I think I felt a bit nervous at the start of the match", Auger-Aliassime said.

"There were some moments in the match where maybe I could have done better", Djokovic said.

Margarita Gasparyan has had knee troubles in the past and as the second set wound down, looked to be in increasing pain until she crumbled to the ground.

World number 62 Gasparyan was 7-5, 5-4 ahead when she collapsed to the ground on Court Three, suffering with cramping.

Neymar is now in Brazil where he is recovering from his injury and is hoping that the rape allegations against him gets dismissed. With Antoine Griezmann joining and Neymar also potentially returning to the Nou Camp, it is a decision that makes sense.


The two had never played against each other before, and it was Bouzkova, a lucky loser ranked 115 in the world, who got an early break to go up 3-2.

With Tomljanovic out, top seed Ashleigh Barty, who faces Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck on Thursday, is Australia's last female hope in the Wimbledon singles. Yeah, it happened that way and really unfortunate for her.

In women's doubles first-round action, No. 4 seeds Gabriela Dabrowski of Ottawa and Yifan Xu of China downed Ons Jabeur of Tunisia and Fanny Stollar of Hungary 6-1, 6-3.

The world number one had only once lost to a player lower than the 111th-ranked Kudla in a Grand Slam - to Denis Istomin at the 2017 Australian Open - and there was never any chance of a repeat on Wednesday.

Azarenka, now at 40 in the world, was a semi-finalist at the All England Club in 2011 and 2012.

Thomas Fabbiano of Italy also advanced, following up his upset win over Stefanos Tsitsipas by beating Ivo Karlovic 6-3, 6-7 (6), 6-3, 6-7 (4), 6-4.

"We have had very tough matches in the past", said Halep, who is 2-2 in career meetings with the 29-year-old Azarenka. So that's why I gave her some water, because no one really did anything. "So on grass it's not that easy". Djokovic is seeking a fifth title at Wimbledon and his 16th Grand Slam trophy in all.
