Swiatek shines in rain

On a rainy Wednesday at Wimbledon, Daniil Medvedev was able to defeat wildcard Arthur Fery and Marta Kostyuk overcame Maria Sakkari to get to the second round. Iga Swiatek, the top seed in the women’s bracket, outclassed Sara Sorribes Tormo 6-2 6-0 and Daria Kasatkina thumped Jodie Burrage 6-0 6-2 to reach the third round. Two matches were disrupted by protesters, who ran onto the lawn to sprinkle a 1,000-piece jigsaw of Centre Court. The individuals were quickly taken away and booed off, and security staff arrested them on suspicion of aggravated trespass and criminal damage. Medvedev expressed his appreciation for the warm reception he received from the British crowd. In other matches, Borna Coric had a shock defeat to Argentina’s Guido Pella, Roman Safiullin beat Spain’s 20th seed Roberto Bautista Agut, and Frances Tiafoe won over China’s Wu Yibing. Brazilian 13th seed Beatriz Haddad Maia also made a remarkable comeback to defeat Kazakhstan’s Yulia Putintseva, and Anett Kontaveit, who is retiring at the end of the tournament, beat Italian Lucrezia Stefanini 6-4 6-4.
