# In the third major stadium, Ukrainian fifth seed Dayana Yastremska (WTA 93) surprised world number seven Marketa Vondrousova, who is the 2023 Wimbledon champion, 6-1, 6-2.

• Bookmakers offered 1.18 odds for the success of the Czech woman. According to the mentioned indicator, the victory of the Ukrainian is the biggest surprise so far in this women’s or men’s tournament.

• In this match, the former world number 21 was superior in first serve success percentage (69 vs 59), first serve points (71% vs 44) and break points (5/10 vs 1/4). R/A: 2-2 to 2-7. Net wins to unforced errors ratio: 26-28 to 5-19.

• After the victory, Jastremska took off her shoes, gave them to the fans and left in her socks.

• As already reported, Jastremska, seeded as the number one in the qualification, won three three-set matches against nominally weaker opponents.

• Jastremska has now ended her seven-match losing streak in the first round of a Grand Slam main tournament.

• Round two is worth 70 ranking points and $120,600 in prize money.

• In the second round, the second racket of France Varvara Gračova (WTA 39th), who got rid of the so-called neutral status last year and made her debut under the new flag, will face her.

• After changing her citizenship, Gračova will only now play against a Ukrainian for the first time. Yastremska will have the opportunity to assess the new situation (with the so-called neutral athletes, the leading Ukrainian women do not take pictures before the game and do not shake hands after the game).
