Tennis: Rus ties record for consecutive defeats

Holland's Arantxa Rus made unwanted history at Wimbledon on Tuesday as she tied the record for consecutive losses on the women's tour with a 6-4, 6-2 defeat against Olga Puchkova. Rus's 17th straight loss equalled the WTA mark set by Sandy Collins between 1984 and 1987 and left her still waiting for her first victory since beating Romina Oprandi in Dallas in August last year. The 22-year-old left-hander has managed to take a set in only two of her 13 defeats this year, a futile sequence stretching across the globe from Miami to Marrakech and Melbourne.
