‘Lucky’ opponent, distractions send second-seeded Caroline Wozniacki out of Wimbledon

LONDON — Caroline Wozniacki complained about the flying insects at Wimbledon, demanding that bug spray be brought to the court.

She wondered aloud whether play should be halted because of a brief drizzle.

And Wozniacki, seeded second, was not exactly gracious in defeat after staving off five match points, but not the sixth, in what became a 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 loss to 35th-ranked Ekaterina Makarova of Russia in the second round at the All England Club on Wednesday.

The reigning Australian Open champion’s latest lackluster showing at Wimbledon made her the fifth top-eight-seeded woman to exit by the end of Day 3.
