Stars continued to tumble on the second day of Wimbledon 2018 as former champions Maria Sharapova and Petra Kvitova are ousted in their first-round matches respectively. A lot was on the line for Maria who is yet finding her foot in professional tennis post returning from 15-month drug ban. But with niggling injuries and lack of form, the 31-year-old is unable to hit the top form, and it was clearly seen in her first-round shocking exit against 132nd-ranked countrywoman Vitalia Diatchenko. Sharapova lost 6-7 (3-7), 7-6 (7-3), 6-4 and it was not the only surprising Wimbledon result on Day 2. Two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova was ousted by Aliaksandra Sasnovich 6-4, 4-6, 6-0. However, all's not lost in the women’s singles as World No. 1 and newly crowned French Open champion, Simona Halep made it comfortably to the second round. As for the men’s draw, current World No. 1 Rafael Nadal had no problems dispatching Dudi Sela in straight sets to advance to the next round. On that note, we will now move to the Wimbledon 2018 Day 3 Order of Play where Roger Federer and Serena Williams will headline the second-round matches on July 4.
Defending champion Federer is up against Lukas Lacko, with the 20-time major winner holding a 2-0 head-to-head advantage over the Slovakian player. This match will not take place before 6.45pm at the Centre Court as it is former world number one and two-time Wimbledon semi-finalist Victoria Azarenka taking on the seventh seed Karolína Plíšková for a place in the third round. It is one of the exciting games we have on the cards. Another Centre Court must-watch is Serena Williams vs Viktoriya Tomova. Serena who is making a return to Wimbledon after skipping it last year due to her pregnancy is looking forward to hitting her best form at the SW19.
