Halep and Nadal Advance to Round 3 at Wimbledon, England Reaches Quarter-Finals in World Cup and Holloway Drops Out of Title Defence at UFC 226
Simona Halep, the top-ranked seed of the ladies' singles, beat Saisai Zheng in the second round of Wimbledon. Winning 10 games in a row, the Romanian French Open-winner avoided the fate of three of the top five seeds in the ladies' singles who had been defeated in the first two rounds. BBC Sport quotes Halep on how she beat Zheng:
"I stopped missing and tried putting less power on the shot to make her run," she said. "I just have to fight for every point."
Fellow French Open-winner Rafael Nadal secured a 6-4, 6-3, 6-4 victory against Kazakhstan player Mikhail Kukushkin. Wimbledon.com quotes Nadal on the match:
"He was very tough," the three-time Wimbledon champion said as he left court. "He plays very well on grass, with the ball coming very low all the time. But I played much better in this match than in the first round, which was important for me.
England beat out Colombia in the last game of the Round of 16 to reach the quarter-finals. The game ended with the score tied at 1-1 but England won on penalties. FIFA.com quotes England's team reporter Laure James on the victory:
"From Jordan Pickford, who made a name for himself, to Eric Dier, who scored the decisive penalty, no member of Gareth Southgate's team will ever forget this night. The coach can be proud of his players, who implemented their game plan and showed an irrepressible will to win. England will return to their base in Repino to work on closing out matches, but for now they can enjoy their first victory in a knockout game for 12 years."
UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway has dropped out of his title defence fight against Brian Ortega at UFC 226 this weekend according to a report from the Associated Press. Holloway's management team made the announcement last night citing "concussion symptoms".
"Max fought with his team to continue with the fight," the statement said. "He showed some improvement (from Tuesday to Wednesday) but was still showing obvious symptoms. After open workouts he crashed and was very hard to wake up. When he did, he had flashing vision and slurred speech."
