Jo-Wilfried Tsonga became the latest seed to lose at the Aegon Championships, beaten in straight sets by Luxembourg’s Gilles Muller.
The Frenchman, seeded fifth, lost 6-4 6-4 in the second round at Queen’s.
Tsonga’s exit follows defeats for Andy Murray, Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic – the top three seeds – on Tuesday.
Croatia’s fourth seed Marin Cilic and Bulgarian sixth seed Grigor Dimitrov are the leading players left in the draw at the London tournament.
Czech seventh seed Tomas Berdych came through a tight contest against 18-year-old Canadian Denis Shapovalov.
Berdych, 31, earned his first break point of the match after two hours and 14 minutes, converting it to win 7-6 (7-4) 6-7 (4-7) 7-5.
“It was a really great match,” said Berdych, who was a beaten Wimbledon finalist in 2010.
“Denis put up some great tennis and made me work really hard.”
Muller, ranked 26th, is through to the quarter-finals for the third straight year and is now on a six-match winning run on grass.
The 34-year-old, who won the s-Hertogenbosch title in the Netherlands last week, did not face a break point against Tsonga. He will play Australian Jordan Thompson, who beat Murray, or American Sam Querrey in the third round. (BBC Sport)
