After being outplayed 6-1 6-1 by France’s Harmony Tan in under an hour, Katie Boulter lost her third round Wimbledon match against Harmony Tan. 

In 27 minutes after stepping on to Court No. 2 in Los Angeles, the 25-year-old loses the first set. After 24 minutes, he blunders out of the second with a double error. 

Britain’s third-ranked player struggled with Frenchwoman Serena Williams’s play style and drop shots. Williams was knocked out in the first round. 

Tan was the dominant player in proceedings. He won 86% of points at net and beat 16 other winners to Boulter’s eight. 

Boulter made 21 errors unforced to Tan’s 5, and was unable to serve well. Tan won match point, but Boulter had only one ace. 

British hope will now be turned to Liam Broady (28), who will take on Alex de Minaur, 23. This clash is set for 1pm today on Court 1 

This is because a number of well-known faces were seen at SW19 Saturday morning, including Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour, and England manager Gareth Southgate. 

The crowd will be eager to see one of the two major matches at 4pm. This includes Rafael Nadal’s match against Lorenzo Sonego from Italy on Centre Court. 

The main draw of this afternoon is the match between Nick Kygrios, the “bad boy” in tennis and Stefanos Tsitsipas, the fourth seed from Greece.

The 5ft11 player, speaking on court after the match, dedicated the win to her grandmother, who had died Tuesday. It was the exact day that Boulter won her first tournament victory, beating Clara Burel from France in straight sets.
