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.
