Azzurra was remounted and eliminated by Czech Kvitova.

No feat for Jasmine Paolini, beaten in three sets in the first round of Wimbledon by Czech Petra Kvitova, world number 26 and big favorite for the challenge after her victory in Eastbourne.

The Azzurra started off gritty and won the first set decisively 6-2, then suffered the inexorable comeback of Kvitova, who also thanks to a few too many errors by the Tuscan won the second set 6-4. In the third set the Czech’s dominance was sharper, 6-2: the match ended under two hours. In the next round Kvitova will face Romanian Bogdan.
