LONDON, June 29 — Second seed Anett Kontaveit was knocked out of Wimbledon today, losing 6-4, 6-0 to Germany’s Julie Niemeier.

Estonia’s Kontaveit has made the quarter-finals of a Grand Slam just once in 29 attempts.

World number 97 Niemeier is into the third round of a major for the first time, where she will tackle Ukraine’s Anhelina Kalinina or Lesia Tsurenko, another player from the war-torn nation. — AFP
