Tomljanovic knocks out No.18 seed at Wimbledon
Australian Ajla Tomljanovic has eliminated No.18 seed Jil Teichmann of Switzerland in the opening round at Wimbledon 2022.
Ajla Tomljanovic has made a stunning start to her Wimbledon campaign.
The top-ranked Australian woman eliminated No.18 seed Jil Teichmann in opening-round action today, recording a 6-2 6-3 victory.
It is the third time in world No.44 Tomljanovic’s career she has knocked out a top-20 seed at Grand Slam level – and the first time she has achieved the feat at Wimbledon.
It also marks the second major tournament in a row that Tomljanovic has eliminated a seeded opponent in the opening round, having beaten fifth seed Anett Kontaveit at Roland Garros last month.
Tomljanovic, a quarterfinalist at Wimbledon last year, is now set to face American qualifier Catherine Harrison in the second round.
In other ladies’ singles action today, Australian hopes Zoe Hives, Astra Sharma, Jaimee Fourlis and Daria Saville all lost their first-round matches.
While four Australian men – Alex de Minaur, Nick Kyrgios, Jordan Thompson and Jason Kubler – recorded first-round singles wins.
