Wickmayer upsets second-seeded Lin at Prague Open
Yanina Wickmayer rallied to upset second-seeded Zhu Lin 1-6, 6-4, 6-2 in the first round of the Prague Open on Tuesday.
Spectators at the D.C. Open were told before Ukraine's Elina Svitolina defeated Belarus' Victoria Azarenka 7-6 (2), 6-4 on Monday night that the players would not shake hands when their first-round match ended.
Despite a heartbreaking loss in the third round, Bianca Andreescu leaves Wimbledon full of optimism. The 23-year-old from Mississauga, Ont., performed well in her Centre Court debut at the All England Club, but fell 6-3, 3-6, 4-6 in a tight match with 2022 finalist Ons Jabeur on Saturday.
Her third-round exit last year after winning the French Open was a disappointment. The top-ranked Swiatek cleared that hurdle Friday at the All England Club, dispatching 30th-seeded Petra Martic 6-2, 7-5 to reach the fourth round.
