Defending champion Angelique Kerber crashes out of Wimbledon
Angelique Kerber of Germany plays a forehand in her Ladies' Singles second round match against Lauren Davis of the United States during Day 4 of The Championships - Wimbledon 2019 at All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club on July 4, 2019,(CNN) - Defending champion Angelique Kerber crashed out of Wimbledon with a shock second-round defeat to American Lauren Davis on Thursday. The three-time grand slam champion lost 6-2 2-6 1-6 to the 95th-ranked Davis. Kerber took the opening set in just 31 minutes and looked set to cruise to victory but the diminutive Davis, standing at just 5 feet 2 inches, stunned the German who took just three games from the last two sets. It will be a very happy Fourth of July for the American, who only made it into the Wimbledon main draw as a lucky loser after suffering defeat in qualifying over the weekend. The 25-year-old Davis will now play Spain's Carla Surez Navarro on Saturday.
