AP Sports Writer

LONDON (AP) — Coco Gauff has reached the third round at Wimbledon with a 6-2, 6-1 victory over qualifier Anca Todoni of Romania. She won on No. 1 Court, where Gauff made her memorable Grand Slam debut five years ago when she upset five-time champion Venus Williams at age 15. The second-seeded Gauff says the court “is always a special place for me to play on.” The 19-year-old Todoni is from Romania and was making her Grand Slam debut. Four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka was eliminated in the second round by No. 19 Emma Navarro. Other winners Wednesday included No. 11 Danielle Collins and No. 20 Beatriz Haddad Maia. On the men’s side, defending champion Carlos Alcaraz won to set up a third-round meeting with No. 29 Frances Tiafoe.
