Two-time champ stunned

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

Madi­son Bren­gle knew, of course, that her op­po­nent, Pe­tra Kvi­tova, was a two-time Wimbledon cham­pion and a pop­u­lar pick to win the ti­tle again this year.

Bren­gle also was aware, of course, that she her­self never had won so much as one main-draw match at the All Eng­land Club un­til this week.

This, in­stead, is all the 27-year-old from Dover, Delaware, was fo­cused on as she be­gan play­ing Kvi­tova on Wed­nes­day evening on Court No. 2: Please just let me win a game. The 95th-ranked Bren­gle did just that — and much, much more, stun­ning the 11th-seeded Kvi­tova 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 to reach the third round at Wimbledon.
