Burrage, who represents Britain, seemed overwhelmed by the setting of her first match on Centre Court, leading to her defeat by Daria Kasatkina, the 11th seed, within an hour.
The 24-year-old Burrage had tasted her maiden victory at the All England Club just the previous Monday, but succumbed to Kasatkina with a score of 6-0, 6-2 in the second round.
Burrage, the second-ranked British player, managed to score only seven points in the initial set that lasted 19 minutes.
Although Burrage took an early lead in the second set, a pause due to rain disrupted her rhythm. Upon resumption, Kasatkina rallied to win five consecutive games, propelling her into the top 32.
Burrage was one of seven British players slated to perform on Wednesday, amidst a schedule packed with 87 matches. This rush was due to the postponement of most second-day matches due to heavy rain.
The third day also began on a damp note, with play on the outer courts commencing nearly two hours later than scheduled at 12:45 BST.
Additionally, an unforeseen interruption occurred when environmental activists invaded Court 18, scattering confetti and a jigsaw on the court during the match between Grigor Dimitrov from Bulgaria and Japan’s Sho Shimabukuro.
