London - Petra Kvitova, the two-time Wimbledon champion and the bookmakers' favourite for the 2017 title, was knocked out in the second round on Wednesday.

The Czech 11th seed lost 6-3, 1-6, 6-2 to Madison Brengle of the United States.

Kvitova, who is playing in her second Grand Slam since recovering from a terrifying knife attack in her home, needed to call for medical assistance during the third set.

Kvitova made 50 unforced errors during the match on Court Two.
