Muguruza loses in Birmingham 2nd round, Kvitova advances

BIRMINGHAM, England (AP) — Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza tried to look on the bright side of her second-round 6-2, 6-4 defeat to unseeded Barbora Strycova in the Birmingham Classic on Thursday. "We have a lot of time now to prepare (for Wimbledon). In a way it's good," Muguruza said. "I wish I could play more matches, but nothing really worries me." The top-seeded Spaniard struggled in windy conditions against the tenacious Czech, who has won their last three encounters on grass. Muguruza sometimes looked languid in responding to the challenge of a hard-working opponent, and occasionally became irritated by the strong winds. She also let slip a 4-2 second set lead, and was several times passed when she increased her ratio of net attacks. "I'm going to practice more to get ready for Wimbledon. I'm not going to do anything very different," Muguruza said. "I'm staying in the same place and things like that, but I'm not superstitious. I don't have to do anything special. That's silly. "Obviously my level wasn't at its best. But credit to her. I think she played well." Although Muguruza lost in Birmingham last year too, she played four useful warmup matches against two this time. But she also lost to Strycova at Eastbourne a week later last year before going on to win Wimbledon. Strycova reached the quarterfinals here for a third time and now plays Lesia Tsurenko, the unseeded Ukrainian who overcame sixth-seeded Daria Kasatkina 1-6, 6-3, 6-3. "I like to fight, on and off the court," Strycova said. "Sometimes you fight and get a reward. "You have to play tricky in these conditions, and I did that, although I admit in that last game I was very nervous." Earlier, defending champion Petra Kvitova beat Daria Gavrilova, a troublesome opponent in the past, 6-2, 6-2 to reach the quarterfinals. Gavrilova won their last two matchups being persistent and mobile enough to contain Kvitova's uncompromising hitting. But the wind pushed and pulled the Australian into errors at important moments. During Gavrilova's first two service games, she committed four double faults and lost both service games, helping Kvitova to a rampant start. "The conditions were tough in that wind," acknowledged Kvitova, who delivered five double faults herself. "But that's fine. The grass helped me for sure. We hadn't played each other on this surface before." Fourth-seeded Kvitova next plays Julia Goerges, the world No. 13 from Germany, who beat last year's runner-up, Ashleigh Barty, 7-6 (6), 6-3......»»

France defense excels in 1-0 victory over Peru in Group C

By Karel Janicek, Associated Press YEKATERINBURG, Russia (AP) — With all its attacking talent, France proved it also has class in defense. Other coaches might envy Didier Deschamps, who has a forward line bursting with skill, speed and goals. But Peru coach Ricardo Gareca looked at the other end Thursday after his team lost 1-0. "I think France did some outstanding work of defense," said Gareca, whose team was eliminated while the French advanced to the knockout stage. "Credit needs to be given to France, it's not that Peru fell short," Gareca said. "Unlike their other games, France had very strong tactical discipline to neutralize Peru. Something that wasn't visible in their other matches." After Peru lost its opening game to Denmark 1-0, it needed a least a point against France to stay in contention following a 36-year absence from the tournament. With striker Paolo Guerrero back in the starting lineup, Peru's players used any and every opportunity to put France under pressure. It didn't work. Deschamps made two tactical changes for the game, using Olivier Giroud and Blaise Matuidi in the starting line-up. The result upfront was visible. France was more fluid than in the 2-1 victory over Australia and the cooperation between midfielders Paul Pogba and Ngolo Kante with the attackers resulted in a number of scoring opportunities. But when Peru was on a desperate attack, they all were ready to help at the back. It was not just defenders Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti and Lucas Hernandez who were solid for the second straight game. "It doesn't come only from the French defense," Deschamps said. "The attacking players did what they had to do. They made an effort for the team to be compact, to work together. It was very important to have very solid defense." France neutralized Guerrero to a single chance in the first half. But goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who made his 100th international appearance, saved his low shot from close range. In the second half, France kept Peru at a distance, allowing mostly only long range attempts on goal. Even such an offensive ace as Kylian Mbappe, who scored the winning goal in the first half, came to help. "If the team needs it, you need to sacrifice yourself," Mbappe said. "Today, sometimes we didn't need to be up the field ... this is what I did.".....»»
