Wimbledon 2010 – Baltacha Out in First Round

Wimbledon 2010Elena Baltacha whimpered her way out of Wimbledon 2010, after she threw away what looked like an unlosable position to Croatia’s Petra Martic.

After leading by a set to love and serving for the match at 5-3 in the second, Baltacha “bottled crashed” and she lost the next 6 games eventually losing 2-6 7-5 6-3.

The British number one who up to this point in 2010 had what could be considered a great year for a British women was a favorite to do well in the initial rounds of this years Wimbledon and was at the very least expected to reach round 2.

She will now lose her rankings points from last year when she reached the third round and must now put this sorry loss behind her and pick up her game as she now moves into the American hard court season
