France's Michael Llodra today became the latest player to pull out of Wimbledon due to injury.

The 33-year-old made a strong start to his second-round match against Italian Andreas Seppi by winning the first three games, but the opening set turned around and went to Seppi by a 7-5 margin.

Llodra, feeling ill at ease, called for the trainer at that stage and decided he would go no further in the Court 14 match.

Seven players either abandoned singles matches yesterday or handed their opponents walkovers to the third round, a record for any day in a grand slam during the open era.
