The ongoing Wimbledon Tennis tournament has recorded its first major victim.

World number one female player, Angelique Kerber has lost her hold on the world number one ranking as the German was beaten 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 by Spain’s Garbine Muguruza on Monday.

Kerber’s fourth round exit extended a miserable run for last year’s Wimbledon runner-up, who has failed to make the last eight at any of this year’s three majors.

Kerber, the 2016 Wimbledon runner-up, will be replaced at number one by either Karolina Pliskova or Simona Halep.

Muguruza, the 2015 finalist, goes onto play Svetlana Kuznetsova for a place in the last four.
