The only other seed to lose in the women's singles was Keys' compatriot Coco Gauff.

Anastasija Sevastova of Latvia won 1-6, 6-2, 6-3 against the 17-year-old.

Slovakia's Kristína Kučová came close to knocking out top seed and world number one Ashleigh Barty in a three-set match, however the Australian saved a match point to progress 6-3, 4-6, 7-5.

Ukraine's fifth seed Elina Svitolina progressed in three sets as well, again coming from a set down to defeat American Shelby Rogers 3-6, 7-5, 6-3.

Seventh seed Aryna Sabalenka is another player into the round of 32, thanks to winning the final-set tiebreak against Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova.

Sabalenka eventually triumphed 0-6, 6-3, 7-6 (11-9).

Ninth seed Petra Kvitová of the Czech Republic comfortably defeated Alizé Cornet of France 6-0, 6-4, while reigning French Open champion Iga Świątek of Poland defeated unseeded Czech Barbora Krejčíková 6-4, 6-2.
