Kerber suffers shock loss to lucky-loser Davis

first_imgLONDON, England (Reuters) – Defending champion Angelique Kerber was dumped out of Wimbledon yesterday as she suffered a stunning 2-6, 6-2, 6-1 second-round defeat by American world number 95 Lauren Davis.German Kerber, a three-time Grand Slam champion, raced through the first set before the match turned wildly on its head and Davis, who needed a lucky-loser spot to play in the tournament, lost only three more games.After taking the second set, the 25-year-old Davis turned the screw on Court Two and wrapped up victory in an hour and 55 minutes when fifth seed Kerber netted.The American had previously been a top-30 player but had fallen to 252 in the world by the end of 2018, before beginning a rapid rise back up the rankings.Davis was the more aggressive, outhitting Kerber with 45 winners to 13, and breaking the German’s serve eight times in the match, to set up a third-round meeting with number 30 seed, Carla Suarez Navarro.The contest had started well for Kerber as she broke for a 4-2 lead in the first set then again to love in the eighth game to clinch the opener.Yet after a visit from the trainer, Davis turned the encounter on its head.After the second set began with three breaks of serve, Davis held to get her nose ahead, 3-1, and broke again for a 4-1 lead.After failing to convert her first two match-points at 5-1, Davis made no mistake with the third when a strong return forced Kerber to net.last_img read more
