Wimbledon 2021: Stefanos Tsitsipas was the first big name to exit the tournament after a first round loss to Frances Tiafoe.

Third seed Stefanos Tsitsipas became the first big name to exit Wimbledon on the first day of play Moday, losing 6-4, 6-4, 6-3 to Frances Tiafoe of the United States. It was quite a contrast in fortunes for the Greek who only a fortnight ago lost in five sets to Novak Djokovic in the French Open final. Tsitsipas has now lost in the first round at Wimbledon on three occasions.

Tiafoe, the world number 57, goes on to face either Canada’s Vasek Pospisil or Roberto Carballes Baena for a place in the last 32.
