Genie finally managed to complete her first round match at Wimbledon after she defeated Magdalena Rybarikova of Slovakia 6-3 6-4 in a match time of 72 minutes.
Genie started her first round match yesterday and the match was suspended at 6-3 2-1 due to rain. After another rainy day at Wimbledon, Genie’s match looked like it was going to be cancelled but the match was put back on the schedule as there was enough time to complete the match under the roof on Centre Court.
Seven games were played and Genie won four of them to book a spot in the second round against No.16 seed Johanna Konta of Great Britain. Genie has never played the 25-year-old before. This match will be played on Thursday and is the third match on Centre Court. The schedule begins at 1.00 PM local time.
