MORE TENNIS THAN YOU'LL EVER NEED

Wimbledon – Day 3 ladies’ singles final results

A lot of rain on Tuesday basically meant throwing the schedule to the wolves.

And Bianca Andreescu still didn’t get on court.

Rebecca Marino is in limbo, and Carol Zhao snatched victory from the jaws of defeat in her Grand Slam debut.

Shocker upsets were Sakkari (who won the first set 6-0) and Karolina Pliskova, who lost to a noisy Serbian clay-courter in straight sets.
