WIMBLEDON 2015: Defending Champ P3Tra Kvitova Upset By Jankovic; Lower Half Of Draw Wide Open

2-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova looked unbeatable through her first two rounds of her title defense but then in the second set (at 6-3 4-2) of her third round encounter with former World #1 Jelena Jankovic she suddenly started missing the lines and things went down hill from there.

Kvitova had lost 3 games through the first two matches but when Jankovic started putting up stiff resistance she did not handle the tension well, and lost the second set 5-7.

The third set was a closer affair with both players holding serve until the tenth game when Kvitova, serving to stay in the match was up 30-15 but then lost three consecutive points on errors to lose the match 6-4 in the third.

The removal of Kvitova from the bottom half of the draw leaves that section wide open, with no major champions remaining.

In the bottom half of the draw Caroline Wozniacki, Aga Radwanska, Garbine Muguruza, Jelena Jankovic and Madison Keys all have chances to get to Wimbledon final by simply winning three more matches.
