Raducanu crashes out of Wimbledon

US Open champion Emma Raducanu crashed out of Wimbledon on Wednesday, losing her second-round match against Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-3 to the disappointment of the British home crowd.

The 10th seed, who was troubled by a side strain in the run-up to the tournament, was broken five times in the match by her French opponent, ranked 55 in the world.

Second seed Anett Kontaveit also tumbled out in the second round, thumped 6-4 6-0 by big-serving Jule Niemeier, who is making a mark on her first appearance at the Championships.

The 26-year-old Kontaveit could not counter the German’s huge groundstrokes on a sunny No 1 court.
