Wimbledon a motivation for Kvitova

  • Simona Halep Aegon International Eastbourne

Having stepped away from the court as she waits to become a mother in September, Williams, who won Wimbledon in 2015 and 2016, has created a power vacuum at the top that Sharapova was expected to fill when the Russian returned from her doping suspension. One has to remember that Serena Williams, a 23-Major victor, and Maria Sharapova, a five-time Major champion, are not going to be featuring at this year's tournament.

Such is the absence of a clear favourite, Petra Kvitova, would have to produce one of the most remarkable comebacks the sport has ever seen to claim her third Wimbledon title.

Konta will be aiming to gain revenge over Hsieh, who shocked her in the first round of the French Open.

"Of course, it's different if Serena is not here. I practised today. I felt good", Konta told reporters at Wimbledon on Sunday.

There she reached the last four and was only a painful semi-final defeat by Simona Halep away from becoming the world No 1. "I know how tough it is to win a grand slam, so I'm not really seeing myself as one of the favourites right now".

Wimbledon 2015 runner-up Garbine Muguruza believes there are plenty of players who could make an impact at next week's championships despite the absence of last year's victor Serena Williams and former champion Maria Sharapova.

Kerber was beaten by Ekaterina Makarova in the first round of the French Open, bringing an end to a poor campaign on the red surface.

South Africa bowl out West Indies for 48
Although Kapp was unable to get a third scalp for the hat-trick, she clean-bowled Deandra Ditton for a duck in the same over. South Africa dismissed them for 63‚ and they were bowled out for 204 and 183 by Australia and India.


Beaten by Serena in the Wimbledon final 12 months ago, Kerber, who won the Australian and US Opens previous year, has yet to claim a single WTA title in 2017.

In December, her career was hanging by a thread after she was knifed during a break-in at her house in the Czech Republic, suffering serious tendon damage to her left hand.

"I am just happy to be back on the court and that's it", she said.

"I have already been number one for so long and I will try to keep it, but I am here to play round by round and only focus on my matches, not the numbers, the rankings or the points that I have to defend". "I think the grass is always giving me extra confidence".

"We still do have great players in the draw, even (though) Serena is not playing".

"It is about who is going to be the most consistent, solid and have the luck", the Slovakian added.

Five-time Wimbledon victor Venus Williams, aged 37, will be another sentimental favourite. 'I'm taking it a day at a time.
