Alexander Zverev out in the first round at Wimbledon

Naomi Osaka and Alexander Zverev fell at the first hurdle but it hardly comes as a surprise.

Zverev has had a nightmare of a season so far with only a title in Geneva and early exits at the Australian Open, Indian Wells, Miami and most recently in Stuttgart and Halle. He also suffered stunning losses to Struff, Ferrer, Munar, Garin and Jarry. Today he lost to Jiri Vesely in 4 sets.

As for 2-time Grand Slam champion Osaka, she admitted prior to the Championships that she was relieved not to be number one anymore, as she had not been prepared for the pressure that being number one brought. Beaten today by Yulia Putintseva 6-7 2-6,  she became the first top-two seed to lose in the women’s first round since Martina Hingis in 2001.
