As the sun set on the grass courts of the All England Club, the Belgian dominated in the final two sets to take down third-seeded Garbine Muguruza 5-7, 6-2, 6-1 ending the defending champion's run on No. 2 Court.

Jabeur next heads to Budapest, where she'll play a $100k ITF clay tournament next week in an effort to make the cut for the US Open main draw.

Prior to Muguruza's defeat, second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki and seeds four through six - Sloane Stephens, Elina Svitolina and Caroline Garcia - had already been eliminated from the tournament.

After her stunning loss Murguruza said "She played big today". I also think that my level was not where I wanted it to be.

Her exit comes after men's third seed Marin Cilic also lost in the second round. "It was a little bit unfortunate to stop last night when I was (a) break down", said Cilic.

Kerber came through a battle with 18-year-old reigning Wimbledon girls' singles champion Claire Liu, the two-time grand slam victor rallying to triumph 3-6 6-2 6-4.

Muguruza was beaten 5-7 6-2 6-1 by little-known Belgian Alison Van Uytvanck in fading light.

Kerber lost the 2016 final to Serena Williams.

"Yesterday I played really good. I feel ready to compete".

British hopes were dashed when 22nd seed Johanna Konta went out, losing to former world No. 4 Dominika Cibulková, 3-6, 4-6.

"Confidence was there. I'm playing well the last couple of days, so that's what I took with me on the court", said Van Uytvanck, twice a titlist on the WTA tour.

Australia's Nick Kyrgios also advanced in straight sets, beating Dutchman Robin Haase 6-3 6-4 7-5 in 96 minutes.

"Today when we came back, obviously he served two good service games in that third set, came back two sets to one", Cilic told reporters.

Van Uytvanck, who is ranked 47th in the world, stormed to a 4-2 lead in the second set and Muguruza's frustration was in full view.

No. 7 Karolina Pliskova is the other top-eight-seeded woman left in the draw.

It is the 24-year-old's best result at Wimbledon as she enters the third round to face Estonian Anett Kontaveit. Pella himself seemed surprised at his mammoth victory. Played great (for) two sets.

Women's French Open victor Simona Halep avoided being upset. "Hopefully it's going to be fine".

Despite first serve speeds in excess of 102 miles per hour, and the game yo-yoing between deuce and advantage to Ms. Utyvanck three times, the latter finally clinched the fourth matchpoint to win the match, which finished just before 15.00 EEST.
