What A Day At Wimbledon!

WIMBLEDON, Great Britain

Americans left in the draw

The fairytale story of [313] Cori Gauff continues. Pushed almost to the brink of elimination by [60] Polona Hercog (SLO), Gauff fought off two match points to win 3-6, 7-6(7), 7-5.

[34] Danielle Collins could not pull off another comeback; she forced it to a third set, but [24] Petra Martic (CRO) would not be denied and she won 6-4, 3-6, 6-4.

[63] Reilly Opelka lost in straight sets after a compelling first set. The young American got discouraged after losing the first set and never recovered; [15] Milos Raonic (CAN) won 7-6(1), 6-2, 6-1.

How the seeds fared on day 5

[4] Kevin Anderson (RSA) last year’s finalist, lost a shocker. Anderson could not solve the puzzle of the veteran clay court specialist [26] Guido Pella (ARG) and lost 4-6, 3-6, 6-7(4).

[10] Karen Khachanov (RUS) lost in straight sets to [23] Roberto Bautista Agut (ESP) 3-6, 6-7(3), 1-6.

[11] Daniil Medvedev (RUS) lost 6-4, 2-6, 6-3, 3-6, 5-7 to [21] David Goffin (BEL).

[14] Caroline Wozniacki (DEN) continues to have a subpar season. Although she got to a final earlier this season (April), she has had a slew of first round losses since. Today’s match was always going to be a tough battle for the Dane as Zhang has played her close their head-to-head was tied at 1:1. Today it was an easy victory for [50] Shuai Zhang (CHN), who won 6-4, 6-2. This is the furthest that Zhang has ever gone at Wimbledon (five previous visits and she lost in the first round).

[19] Felix Auger-Aliassime (CAN) succumbed to the pressure of the occasion and the tactics of [66] Ugo Humbert (FRA). The Canadian teenager lost 4-6, 5-7, 3-6.

[20] Anett Kontaveit (EST) lost 6-7(7), 3-6 to [68] Karolina Muchova (CZE).
