Wimbledon results 2017: Stan Wawrinka upset in opening round

Up next for Medvedev will be Ruben Bemelmans, after the Belgian qualifier beat veteran Tommy Haas 6-2 3-6 6-3 7-5. So even I guess if I didn’t beat Stan, it would be one of the biggest wins in my life.Russian Daniil Medvedev, fresh from upsetting world number three Stan Wawrinka in the first round at Wimbledon, said he was now targeting a run to the last eight at the All England Club.Nick Kyrgios, who retired hurt from the opening match against Pierre-Hugues Herbert on Monday, said surgery would be the last option to get injured hip fixed and hoped to be back in circuit and play as many tournaments as possible in the hard courts of the United States.Wawrinka, victor of all the other Grand Slams but has never made it past the quarter-final at SW19, crashed to a 6-4 3-6 6-4 6-1 defeat.Wawrinka, who finished as runner-up at the French Open, entered the match with a nagging left knee injury.French Open champion Rafael Nadal began his Wimbledon campaign with a comfortable win over Australia’s John Millman.As the whole court opened up before him, and with his opponent Daniil Medvedev rooted to the spot, Wawrinka managed nothing more than dolefully plopping the ball straight into the net.”Right now I don’t know what I have to say”.”I kind of knew I was in trouble”.”It was a very positive match for me, a good start”, Nadal told reporters.”There are really no words to describe, like, how devastating and. yeah”. “But I played against a great player who I think was confident today, was playing well, was playing faster”.Ninth seed Kei Nishikori dropped just four games in a 6-2 6-2 6-0 win over Marco Cecchinato but 31st seed Fernando Verdasco was knocked out by Kevin Anderson.He made the semi-finals in Eastbourne last week where it took Novak Djokovic to stop him, as well as the quarter-finals at ‘s-Hertogenbosch and Queen’s.Marin Cilic’s power game proved far too much for Philipp Kohlschreiber in the first round as the Croatian seventh seed swept his German opponent aside 6-4 6-2 6-3.”It’s obviously not flawless”, Keys said after beating Nao Hibino of Japan, 6-4, 6-2.
