The 2020 Australian Open champion Kenin, seeded four, never got going on a cool Court Two and lasted only 45 minutes against the 31-year-old.

Several other Grand Slam champions avoided early exits though on the slick lawns.

Former Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza maintained her dominant form as she reached the third round with 6-1 6-4 win over Dutchwoman Lesley Pattinama Kerkhove.

Muguruza, winner in 2017, has dropped six games so far.
