Wimbledon: No. 23 Zheng Jie Upset By Petra Kvitova

No. 23 Zheng Jie, a 2008 Wimbledon semifinalist, has lost to unseeded Petra Kvitova 6-4, 2-6, 6-2.

Kvitova’s win was a victory for power over finesse, with Kvitova finally finding the range on her powerful ground strokes late in third set, winning the final four games of the match.

It’s a disappointing loss for the wildly inconsistent Zheng, who hasn’t made any noise to speak of this year since reaching the Australian Open semifinals this January.
