Wawrinka crashes out at Wimbledon

Wawrinka crashes out at Wimbledon

Another unseeded American, Danielle Collins, also advanced. The Croatian finished with 38 aces but only forced one break point in the match, which he couldn't convert.

Three-time major victor Stan Wawrinka was knocked out of Wimbledon on Wednesday, falling in five sets to 6ft 11in (2.1m) Reilly Opelka as defending champion Novak Djokovic waited to push his bid for a fifth title.

The 63rd-ranked Opelka, who is making his debut at Wimbledon, earned the only service break of the fifth set in the last game, helped by four groundstroke errors from Wawrinka, who was seeded 22nd.

It's Opelka's first win in the main draw at SW19 and Wawrinka admits that he's struggling to now compete with the world's top players.

Next up is a last-32 clash with fellow ex-world number one Simona Halep who defeated fellow Romanian Mihaela Buzarnescu 6-3, 4-6, 6-2.

Moutet had his chances against Auger-Aliassime, but converted on only two of 14 break-point opportunities.

In a press conference in Wimbledon after his straight-set win over Philipp Kohlschreiber, Novak Djokovic commented on the reasons that led him to add Goran Ivanisevic as an additional coach.

No.8 seed Elina Svitolina moved into the third round at Wimbledon on Wednesday when Russian Margarita Gasparyan retired late in the second set.

The scoreboard read 5-7, 6-5, 40-15 with the No.8 seed serving when the World No.62 came to the net to shake hands.

Raonic fought back from a break down to win the first set in a tiebreak and then controlled the rest of the match with his powerful serve. She clutched her left thigh in pain and then remained lying on the baseline for several minutes getting treatment from physical therapist, with Svitolina also coming over to bring her opponent water.

It's only the second time in eight appearances that Svitolina has reached the third round at the All England Club.

"I don't know how long it's been since she's been on her comeback but I just think today there was no up and down from her, which is what she was so good at when she was No. 1 and winning slams".

She will next play Victoria Azarenka, who beat Ajla Tomljanovic 6-2, 6-0.

Djokovic beat Anderson in the 2018 final for his fourth Wimbledon title, and they could face each other in the semifinals of this year's tournament.

Later, American teenager Coco Gauff was playing Magdalena Rybarikova on No. 1 Court at the All England Club.

The defending champion did a bit of both on Centre Court at Wimbledon on Wednesday, beating Denis Kudla of the United States 6-3, 6-2, 6-2 in the second round. Djokovic is seeking a fifth title at Wimbledon and his 16th Grand Slam trophy in all.
