In her quest to reach the fourth round of a major tournament for the first time, Katie Boulter’s hopes were dashed as she encountered a formidable opponent in defending champion Elena Rybakina at Wimbledon 2023.
Being the sole remaining home player in the singles draws, the British number one faced a swift defeat, with Rybakina outclassing her with a commanding score of 6-1, 6-1 in a mere 57 minutes.
Rybakina, hailing from Kazakhstan and seeded third, showcased her prowess on the court, solidifying her position as the favorite to retain her title through a dominant performance. With a strong first serve and breaking Boulter five times, the 24-year-old secured her spot in the fourth round.
Despite recent concerns about her condition due to a previous illness, Rybakina has silenced any doubts and now prepares to face the Brazilian 13th seed, Beatriz Haddad Maia, in a bid to secure a place in the quarter-finals.
