Petra Kvitova has crashed out of the Wimbledon Championships in the first round for the first since since 2009 following a shock loss to Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

The two-time Wimbledon champion said afterwards that she wanted to win ‘too much.’ Blaming pressure as one of the main culprits behind her downfall. Also joining Kvitova on the exit list is Maria Sharapova, who was stunned by compatriot Vitalia Diatchenko in a three-hour marathon.

There was better news for Simona Halep and Garbine Muguruza, who both started their campaigns with straight sets wins. Halep, who is yet to reach a Wimbledon final, defeated Japan’s Kurumi Nara 6-2, 6-4. Meanwhile, defending champion Muguruza defeated British world No.138 Naomi Broady 6-2, 7-5, in exactly 90 minutes.

In the men’s draw, Rafael Nadal’s started his bid for as first title at The All England Club since 2010 with a straightforward win over Dudi Sela. Dropping just eight games on route. Novak Djokovic was also equally impressive as he raced past Australian Open quarter-finalist Tennys Sandgren with little difficulty. On the other hand, there was disappointment for Dominic Thiem who has to retire after two sets due to injury.

Steve Flink from The Tennis Channel joins Ubitennis to analyse all the action that took place on the second day of the tournament.
