Madison Keys becomes the latest seed to exit Wimbledon
Madison Keys was the latest seeded player to exit the ladies draw at Wimbledon as she lost in three sets to world number 120 Evgeniya Rodina.
It will be the Russian’s first time appearing in week two of a major after defeating the number ten seed 7-5 5-7 6-4.
Keys was seemingly in control of the first set – leading 5-2 – before letting it slip away, and looked likely to lose in straights sets when trailing 4-0 in the second.
Despite her opponent receiving treatment early in the third set, Keys couldn’t take advantage and became the latest seed to exit Wimbledon in the first week following the likes of Caroline Wozniacki, Garbine Muguruza and Sloane Stephens.
