Pova served for the match in the second, and was up a break twice in the third and still couldn't close it out. I could see the DF coming, lol. No Plan B, No Dope, No Win!!

It was a typical baseline slugfest, and shriek fest, with Diatchenko able to hold her nerves together and watch as Pova self destructed. Pova was up a set and serving at 5-2 in the second to close out the match, and couldn't. As the match wore on and got tighter you could see those df's creeping into the Pova serve and her losing confidence. You could just smell that double fault coming a mile away on match point. You could almost hear Pova saying to herself as she tossed the ball up "please, just please go in the box."

Kvitova choked.
________________

Two-time champion Petra Kvitova was stunned by WTA No. 50 Aliaksandra Sasnovich, 6-4, 4-6, 6-0. (AP)

The upsets kept coming at Wimbledon on Tuesday as two-time champion Petra Kvitova, a popular pre-tournament champion pick, lost to 50th-ranked Aliaksandra Sasnovich in the first round.

Not only does Kvitova have tremendous history at Wimbledon, lifting the Venus Rosewater Dish in 2011 and 2014, but she also came into this year’s tournament as one of the hottest players in the sport, winning more WTA titles (five) and more matches (3Cool than any other player this year.

“I just didn’t feel well obviously,” Kvitova said after the match. “The nerves were there again. I don’t know. I just tried to kind of fight with myself. It was probably the biggest opponent I had today."

No. 24 seed Maria Sharapova suffered a shocking upset on Tuesday, losing to Russian Vitalia Diatchenko in three sets, 6-7, 7-6, 6-4.

The loss was Sharapova's first in the opening round at Wimbledon in 14 appearances in her career.

Diatchenko is the No. 132 ranked player in the world, beating the 2004 Wimbledon champion in just under three hours.
