’17 champ Muguruza, finalist Cilic out in Wimbledon upsets

Even though Federer downed Cilic in the 2017 finale, he'll be relieved to see the 2014 US Open victor leave from his half of the draw.

Muguruza joined No. 2 Caroline Wozniacki, No. 4 Sloane Stephens, No. 5 Elina Svitolina, No. 6 Caroline Garcia and No. 8 Petra Kvitova on the way out so far, along with five-time major champion Maria Sharapova.

Third seed Muguruza came from a break down to win the first set but saw her feeble challenge fizzle out in the next two as van Uytvanck blew the Spaniard away with her big serving. "She took a lot of risks, and it worked for her", I also think that my level today was not where I wanted it to be. The free-hitting Belgian, who was not just swinging on her backhand, but also nailing the open spots on the court, was previously 0-7 against the elite crop.

"It's a little bit sad".

Angelique Kerber similarly survived her own scare after being taken to a third set in her 3-6, 6-2, 6-4 win over Claire Liu.

Van Uytvanck stormed back to beat Muguruza 5-7, 6-2, 6-1.

Halep, who reached the final of the Australian Open and won the French Open this year, will look to improve on her semi-final finish at the All England Club in 2014. I think this was the best thing that I did. "That's important because the support made us feel good".

Three-time major victor Stan Wawrinka was unable to follow up his first round defeat of 6th seed Grigor Dimitrov when he lost 7-6 (9/7), 6-3, 7-6 (8/6) to Italian qualifier Thomas Fabbiano.

French urges calm after violence over youth death in Nantes
Tuesday's police shooting further highlighted tensions, and there was a marked lack of transparency about the 22-year-old's death. The French government on Wednesday called for calm after police in the western city of Nantes clashed overnight with protestors.

"I mean, anyone, on a good day, can beat anyone", Van Uytvanck said.

With a second chance to serve out the set, the defending champion was quick to build a 40-0 lead and a forehand that just clipped the baseline put the third seed in front after 48 minutes of play.

Dominika Cibulkova, Slovakia, def. Johanna Konta (22), Britain, 6-3, 6-4.

Djokovic, the three-time champion, needed treatment on his left knee on Court Two but still had too much for Argentina's Horacio Zeballos, winning 6-1, 6-2, 6-3. Van Uytvanck saved the first break point she faced herself in the fourth game, and dropped just one point in her next two service games en route to wrapping up the opener. "It seems like it's nothing major".

Halep won her first Grand Slam title at the French Open this year. "Hopefully it's going to be fine".

Madison Keys has become the latest top-10 seeded woman to lose at Wimbledon after her comeback fell short.

Nick Kyrgios (15), Australia, def. Robin Haase, Netherlands, 6-3, 6-4, 7-5.
