Karolina Pliskova, a favourite for the Wimbledon title, was dumped out in round two on Thursday, blowing the women's draw wide open in one of the shocks of the tournament so far.

Magdalena Rybarikova shakes hands with Karolina Pliskova after winning their match.

Rybarikova battled back from a set down to win 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 on Centre Court, earning the Slovakian a last-32 clash with Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko.

Kvitova's attempt to repeat her triumphs in 2011 and 2014, ended with a second-round loss to 95th-ranked American Madison Brengle on Wednesday.

The pair will be looking to get a full game under their belts after their first round challenger both retired injured early in their contests on Tuesday.

It is surely only a matter of time before the 25-year-old wins a grand slam title, but that will not be here this fortnight.

"Well, for me, the tournament is over".

She said with a rueful smile: "Probably it's something in the air here. It's a tough draw for everybody I think".

"I'm just waiting for one or two good matches here in a row".

Pliskova praised her opponent's performance, saying: "Obviously it's disappointing".

Without a clear favorite to back, Pliskova was touted by many as a likely contender, but the world number three did not have a track record at SW19 to inspire confidence, having bowed out in the second round during each of the last four tournaments.

"I'm not thinking about it". I was not so confident, I am speechless right now.

"It's an fantastic feeling".

Former US and French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova, seeded seven, took her career record over fellow Russian Ekaterina Makarova to 7-1 with a 6-0, 7-5 win.

On the men's side, Austrian eighth seed Dominic Thiem fought back from a set down to defeat Frenchman Gilles Simon 5-7, 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 on Thursday and move into the Wimbledon third round for the first time.
