Title favourite Kvitova suffers shock first round Wimbledon exit

LONDON, July 3, 2018 (BSS/AFP) – Petra Kvitova crashed out of Wimbledon in
the first round on Tuesday as the two-time champion was beaten 6-4, 4-6, 6-0
by unheralded Belarusian Aliaksandra Sasnovich.

Kvitova was the bookmakers’ favourite for the women’s title at the All
England Club after an impressive return to form this year.

Sasnovich’s reward for the best result of her career is a second round
clash with American Taylor Townsend.
