The golden girl of British sport lost to France's Caroline Garcia 6-3, 6-3 on Centre Court on Wednesday, ending Emma Raducanu's chances of winning Wimbledon.
The current U.S. Open champion, Raducanu, 19, ran into a player who was having a good day. The 28-year-old Frenchwoman triumphed in her eighth straight game.
Garcia's first victory in three years came last week at Bad Homburg, Germany.
At the All England Club, the 18-year-old Raducanu, the 10th-seeded player, advanced to the fourth round on a wild-card entry the previous year.
Garcia, a former top-10 player, controlled the first set by hitting hard and upsetting Raducanu, the 10th seed.
In the second set, she kept on burning while Raducanu faded despite having a lot of help.
Garcia won the next game with a backhand pass, her 25th winner of the match, breaking serve at 3-3 and holding for a 5-3 advantage.
Emma is a very talented player who shows in her local event that she can perform admirably on a large platform, according to Garcia.
It was my first time playing on Center Court, and I enjoyed it.
Since her incredible victory at Flushing Meadows the previous year, Raducanu has struggled with a run of minor injuries.
She has also drawn criticism for not deciding on a long-term coach.
