Connecticut Open commits Petra Kvitova, Madison Keys and Sloane Stephens have advanced to the third round at Wimbledon, posting impressive victories during the first week at the All England Club.

Kvitova has made quick work of her opponents, dropping only two games in the first two rounds. The Czech defeated Kiki Bertens 6-0, 6-1 in the first round followed by a 6-2, 6-0 triumph against Karumi Nara.

After dropping the first set against Stefanie Voegele, Madison Keys rebounded to secure the next two and a second-round berth. The American went on to bounce Elizaveta Kulichkova 6-4, 7-6(3) en route to the third round.

Stephens finds herself in Round 3 following two straight-set victories. The 22-year-old toppled Barbara Zahlavova-Strycova 6-4, 6-2 before defeating fellow American Lauren Davis 6-4, 6-4.
