Sevastova upset by Collins in Wimbledon second round

12th seed Anastasija Sevastova lost her second round Wimbledon match to the unseeded Danielle Collins today. Collins was down a set and 0-3 before staging her comeback. Her 4-6, 6-4, 6-3 victory gives her 24th seed Petra Martic in the third round.

Meanwhile, the rest of the second round has yet to be played. Tomorrow's agenda includes competition from top seed Ash Barty, champion Serena Williams, two-time champion Petra Kvitova, defending champion Angie Kerber, 18th seed Julia Goerges, 4th seed Kiki Bertens, and 25th seed Amanda Anisimova.

Matches I hope I get to watch include: Elise Mertens vs. Monica Niculescu, Katerina Siniakova vs. Jo Konta and Kiki Mladenovic vs. Petra Kvitova.

So far, three former champions have been beaten, and three (Williams, Kvitova, Kerber) remain in the draw. And so far, nine seeds have been eliminated from competition. Today's seeded casualties, in addition to Sevastova, were 17th seed Madison Keys and 27th seed Sonya Kenin. Keys was defeated in straight sets by Polona Hercog, and Kenin lost to Dayana Yastremska.
