Defending champion Kvitova eliminated at Wimbledon (Yahoo Sports)

Petra Kvitova let her lead slip, and let her title go. Former top-ranked player Jelena Jankovic beat the defending Wimbledon champion 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 Saturday on Centre Court, coming back from a set and a break down to reach the fourth round at the All England Club for the first time since 2010. Jankovic, who finished 2008 at No. 1 in the rankings after playing in her only Grand Slam final at that year’s U.S. Open, broke Kvitova to get back on serve at 4-4 in the second set, and then broke again to force a deciding set.
