Wimbledon favourite Petra Kvitova dumped out by Sasnovich
Serena Williams is the new 4-1 favourite after Czech is sent packing
Continues 11.30am Wednesday
The women's singles betting was given an almighty shake-up on day two when ante-post women’s singles favourite Petra Kvitova was sensationally dumped out of Wimbledon at the first hurdle by Aliaksandra Sasnovich.
The Belarusian always looked a tough opponent for the Czech two-time All England Club champion, but Kvitova posted a tired-looking display to go down 6-4 4-6 6-0.
Serena Williams is the new favourite – the American was cut to 4-1 from 11-2 – with defending champion Garbine Muguruza, a 6-2 7-5 victor over Briton's Naomi Broady, the clear 7-1 second favourite.
Johanna Konta got her All England Club title tilt off to a positive start with a 7-5 7-6 triumph over Natalia Vikhlyantseva, but the British number one will need to find more if she is to repeat her heroics of last season when she reached the semi-finals.
Konta's reward is a last-64 clash with world number 32 Dominika Cibulkova, who was unhappy about missing out on a seeding when Serena Williams was seeded 25th for this year’s tournament.
Seventh seed Dominic Thiem, last month's French Open finalist, and tenth seed David Goffin were the big names to exit the men’s singles on day two as French Open champion Rafael Nadal, who is seeded second in London, and fifth seed Juan Martin del Potro posted impressive straight-sets wins over respective opponents Dudi Sela and Peter Gojowczyk.
