Day 3 of Wimbledon brought the upsets on the women’s side of the draw with Emma Raducanu, Garbine Muguruza, and second-seed Anett Kontaveit all exiting the tournament.

Emma Raducanu came to Wimbledon with much fanfare and was seen as their likest hope of winning the grand slam.

But the teenager once again fell way short of the mark losing to Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-3 on Centre Court with the 28-year-old Frenchwoman winning her seventh consecutive match.

The 19-year-old Raducanu reigning US Open champion will look to defend her title at the next grand slam.

Meanwhile, Anett Kontaveit’s journey at the grasscourt grand slam was a short-lived one with the Estonian losing to Juke Niemeier of Germany 6-4, 6-0.

The upsets kept on coming with the 2017 Wimbledon Champion Garbine Muguruza also exiting the tournament earlier than anticipated. The ninth-seeded Muguruza appeared lethargic and was easily beaten by Greet Minnen 6-4, 6-0.

Away from the upsets, Ons Jabeur once again showcased her title credentials with a routine 6-4, 6-0 win over Katarzyna Kawa of Poland.

The Madrid Open champion was joined by Jelena Ostapenko, Maria Sakkari, Alison Riske, Angelique Kerber, Karolína Plíšková, and Jessica Pegula who all made it to the next round of Wimbledon.
