Wimbledon enjoyed one of the most dramatic opening days in the tournament’s history this year, with Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic, and Nikolay Davydenko all being pushed to five sets before eventually emerging victorious.
Still, some of the top players were not quite so fortunate.
Swiss tennis ace Stanislas Wawrinka was seeded to play his compatriot Roger Federer in the fourth round, but like the aforementioned top players, his match went the distance. Wawrinka did not come out on top however, and succumbed 6-7 6-1 2-6 7-6 6-3 to Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan. Other top seed to fall included Croat Marin Cilic and Spaniard Fernando Verdasco.
Federer, Djokovic and Davydenko will all play today, along with former champion Lleyton Hewitt, and will hope for smoother progress in their second round matches.
Yesterday, Britain’s Andy Murray earned himself the chance to play in front of the Queen with a straightforward victory over Czech player Jan Hajek, and has reportedly been practising his bow! On Thursday the Queen makes her first appearance at Wimbledon in 33 years, and given that there was a British winner in 1977 in Virginia Wade, it could be a good omen for the Scot.
Wimbledon tickets are on sale for all remaining dates of the tournament, with top-of-the-range debenture tickets available.
