LONDON, Great Britain – Magdalena Rybarikova brought her stellar grass court form to the All England Club and showed the world some of her best tennis to dispatch No.3 seed Karolina Pliskova, 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 to reach the third round of Wimbledon.

Karolina Pliskova has become the highest-seeded player to fall at Wimbledon, losing to Magdalena Rybarikova in the second round.

Pliskova, the No. 3-seeded player, was the runner-up at the U.S. Open last year and had reached at least the quarterfinals of her last three Grand Slam events.




 Despite the 3-6, 7-5, 6-2 loss, Pliskova still has a chance to move up to No. 1 in the rankings after Wimbledon depending on how Angelique Kerber and Simona Halep fare the rest of the tournament. 

 Rybarikova, making her 10th appearance at the All England Club, has never been past the third round in any of her 35 previous Grand Slams. Ranked No. 87, she reached the third round at Wimbledon once, in 2015, and the third round of the U.S. Open twice, in 2008 and 2009. 

 She lost in the first round at Wimbledon last year and underwent wrist and knee surgeries that prevented her from playing again until February, when she played in an ITF event in Germany.
