World No. 2 Goff crashes out of Wimbledon women’s singles with two 10th seeds remaining

Women’s Tennis Association (WTA) world No. 2 Coco Goff (USA) failed to make it past the round of 16 at the Wimbledon Tennis Championships (£50 million-$87.5 billion).

Goff lost 0-2 (4-6 3-6) to 17th-ranked Emma Navarro (USA) in the round of 16 women’s singles on day seven of the tournament at the All England Club in London, England.

Goff, last year’s U.S. Open champion, has been uncharacteristically weak at Wimbledon.

Despite finishing runner-up at the French Open in 2022 and fourth at this year’s Australian Open, she has never made the quarterfinals at Wimbledon.

With Iga Cibionte (No. 1-Poland) knocked out in the third round the day before, and Ariana Sabalenka (No. 3-Belarus) out with an injury, Elena Rybakina (No. 4-Kazakhstan) is the only top-seeded player remaining in the tournament.

Of the top 10 seeds, only two remain in the field: the 2022 champion and this year’s French Open runner-up Jasmine Paolini (No. 7-Italy).

Four of the women’s singles quarterfinals were set today, and three of them – Navarro, Donna Vekic (No. 37-Croatia) and Lulu Sun (No. 123-New Zealand) – have never reached the quarterfinals of a major before.

This is Bekic’s third major quarterfinal after the 2019 US Open and 2023 Australian Open, while this is Navarro and Sun’s first major quarterfinal.

With her 2-1 (6-2 5-7 6-2) victory over No. 135-ranked Emma Radukanu (Great Britain) in the round of 16, Sun became the first qualifier to reach the women’s singles quarterfinals at Wimbledon in 14 years since Kaia Kanepi (Estonia) in 2010.

This is also the second time in the last 15 years that a world No. 123 has reached the Wimbledon women’s singles quarterfinals.

The previous lowest ranking was Serena Williams (USA) in 2018, when she was ranked 181st, after giving birth in 2017.

Sun is the first New Zealander to reach the women’s singles quarterfinals at a major in 35 years, since Belinda Codwall at the 1989 Australian Open.

Sun was born to a Croatian father and Chinese mother and played as a Swiss national until last year, when she switched to New Zealand.

Sun will face Bekic in the quarterfinals.

After losing to Sun, Radukanu withdrew from the first round of mixed doubles, where he was scheduled to play with Andy Murray (GBR), citing a wrist injury.

In the men’s singles, Yannick Cigner (No. 1-Italy) and Carlos Alcaraz (No. 3-Spain) reached the quarterfinals side by side.

Cinnere will face Danil Medvedev (No. 5-Russia) and Alcaraz will face Tommy Paul (No. 13-USA) in the quarterfinals, with the winner advancing to the semifinals.

Sinnher and Medvedev have a 6-5 head-to-head record, but Sinnher has won his last five matches in a row. Alcaraz and Paul are tied at two wins apiece.

Playing in the junior men’s singles, Orion’s Jang Jun Kim (No. 12-ranked junior) defeated Zach Kennedy (No. 31-ranked USA) 2-0 (6-3 6-1) in the first round.

In the junior women’s singles, Jang Autumn (No. 38) fell 0-2 (1-6 1-6) to Yelene Vandromme (No. 11-Belgium) in the first round. 토토사이트 순위
