Wimbledon 2012 - The Beginning: Ups&Downs

Hello everyone!
So one of my favorite tennis Championships started this past Monday, June 25th. We are past Day 4 and oh so much has happened already!
Just recently tennis lovers were stunned by the news Caroline Wozniacki and Samantha Stosur left the tournament after their opening matches and here comes the other, probably most unexpected, shocker: Rafael Nadal was sent packing also after (yes, nobody knew who he was yet) Lukas Rosol won the 5-setter 6-7, 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4!

Caroline Wozniacki - out & Tamira Paszek - on!
after loosing her opening match at Wimbledon 5-7 7-6(4) 6-4 against Austria's Tamira Paszek. Seventh seed Wozniacki had a chance to finish up the match in straight sets as she had two match points at 6-5 in the second, but Paszek would not let go showing some unbelievable shots to take the set and win the match in  3 hours and 12 minutes.
"It really sucks when you lose. Especially after having two match points and not taking them. It wasn't because I played badly. She just went for it, and that's it," commented Wozniacki.

Samantha Stosur - out & Arantxa Rus - on!
Australian dream came to an end when women's #5 Samantha Stosur lost the match 6-2 0-6 6-4 to Arantxa Rus. The US Open champion lost 6 games in a row to finish the first set before "coming back" to take the match into the third deciding set but failed to finish up the match despite saving two match points.

Rafael Nadal - out & Lukas Rosol - on!
Playing a fearless tennis, Wimbledon debutant Lukas Rosol caused one of the biggest ever upsets in history when he sent Nadal packing after the second round win 6-7 6-4 6-4 2-6 6-4, leaving everyone shocked and himself in disbelief.
"Maybe it's once in lifetime you can play like this against Rafael Nadal on Centre Court and you can win against him. You know, it's not easy. I never expected it can happen, something like this. I still can't believe it. It's like dream for me" - commented Rosol.

Meanwhile, Heather Watson - on:
Britain's Heather Watson is marching into the third round of Wimbledon with a comfortable 6-1 6-4 win over Jamie Lee Hampton.

Good luck to all the players in the future and let's see what a new day brings to the table! ;)
