World No. 1 Iga Swiatek wins 37 matches in a row but loses at wimbledon

A top-ranked player, Iga Swiatek, had been unbeaten since February and looked unbeatable with 37 consecutive matches won and six consecutive titles won

A mistake-filled Saturday ended Swiatek's Wimbledon hopes in the third round after a 6-4, 6-2 loss to France's 37th-ranked Alize Cornet

A two-time French Open champion who has never advanced beyond the fourth round at the All England Club, Swiatek said, "I know I didn't play good tennis. I was pretty confused about my tactics."

It wasn't just the winner of the match that was unexpected

The encounter was also extremely one-sided with a duration of 1 hour, 33 minutes

"This kind of match is what I strive for every day," Cornet said

Swiatek is the first woman to win 37 matches in a row since Martina Hingis also won 37 matches in 1997

Stefanos Tsitsipas, the fourth seed, never recovered from what he called a circus atmosphere and bullying tactics by Nick Kyrgios, who cursed and argued his way to a 6-7 (2), 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7) victory
