Top seed Pliskova ousted in third round; Medvedev advances

seed Karolina Pliskova crashed out of the WTA Wells tournament on Monday, losing in straight sets to unseeded Beatriz Haddad Maia 6-3, 7-5 in a third round match.

Playing in windy conditions on one of the outer courts at the Wells Tennis Garden, Brazil’s Haddad Maia jumped out to a 3-1 lead in the second set before the Czech picked up her game. Meanwhile, US Open champion Daniil Medvedev “put the pressure on” to earn his 50th of the season at the ATP/WTA Indian Wells, defeating Filip Krajinovic 6-2, 7-6 (7/1) in the third round on Monday.

The Russian, 25, delivered a dynamic performance in a second-set tiebreaker to pull away from the Serb and increase match record to 50-10 this season.
