World No. 2 Garbine Muguruza, who beat Serena Williams less than a month ago to earn her first major title, fell in the second round of Wimbledon in a massive upset.

The world No. 2 was completely out of sorts Thursday against world No. 124 Jana Cepelova, losing 6-3, 6-2.

Cepelova asserted her dominance over the 2015 Wimbledon runner-up from start to finish, and sent Muguruza home in just under an hour.

Muguruza struggled to look like the aggressive, powerful player that won her the French Open over Serena Williams. Instead, she appeared timid and flat-footed on the faster surface, failing to move across the court and badly mistiming routine shots.

The 22-year-old Spaniard had played only one match on grass since her Roland Garros win, losing in the first round of the Mallorca Open.

Cepelova’s win over Muguruza was her third over a top-three ranked player. She topped then-world No. 3 Simona Halep at last year’s Wimbledon and bested Williams at the 2014 Charleston Open.
