Local roundup: Brengle upsets No. 16 seed Vondrousova at Wimbledon

Madison Brengle may not have pulled off the marquee upset of the day at Wimbledon.

But knocking off the No. 16 seed was still a pretty impressive start for the 29-year-old pro tennis player from Dover.

Brengle toppled Marketa Vondrousova, 6-4, 6-4, on Monday as she started her stay at the Grand Slam event by reaching the second round for the third straight year.

Vondrousova was coming off a run to the French Open finals. In a match that featured 12 service breaks, Vondrousova said she was also dealing with a hand injury she suffered in practice.

Brengle, herself, deals with a chronic medical condition that frequently effects her hand.

“I think she’s a great player for grass, so I think she played a great match,” Vondrousova said about Brengle on WTA.com. “And I’m having some troubles with my hand, so that was, I think, also the key for the match. She played (to) my forehand and it hurt, so I think she knew that and she played it clever.”

Vondrousova made 30 unforced errors in the match.

Brengle, ranked 88th in the world, never trailed after winning the first two games in each set. In the first set, she won three of the last four games to pull away from a 3-3 tie.

In the second set, Brengle built a 5-2 advantage before finally closing out the match. Brengle had lost her only other career meeting with Vondrousova.

In her next match, Brengle will face the Czech Republic’s Karolina Muchova, who is ranked No. 68, on Wednesday. Brengle is now 4-4 in her career at Wimbledon.
