Defending champion Muguruza bows out of Wimbledon

London, United Kingdom: Defending champion Garbine Muguruza was knocked out of Wimbledon on Thursday, losing to Belgium's Alison van Uytvanck 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 in the second round.

Defeat for the third seed means only three - Serena Williams, No.1 seed Simona Halep and seventh-ranked Karolina Pliskova - of the pre-tournament favourites are left in the draw after two rounds.

Van Uytvanck, the world number 47, who had never previously beaten a top 10 player, will face Estonia's Anett Kontaveit for a place in the last 16.
