Mixed fortunes for Slovak tennis stars

While Slovak tennis player Karol Kučera is through to the next round of the Wimbledon Championships, after comfortably beating Japanese player Takao Suzuki in the second round (6:3, 7:5, 6:2), other Slovaks are already out of the running.

Women's world number 97 Martina Suchá lost in straight sets to Hungarian Aniko Kapros (0:6, 4:6).

The biggest disappointment was Daniela Hantuchová, world number 9, who lost to 81st-placed Japanese player, Shinobu Asagoe, after a marathon 2 hour 47 minute match. Hantuchová won the first set 6:0, lost the second set 4:6, and then went from 5:2 up in the final set to lose 10:12.
