The 2013 Wimbledon tournament has seen tennis stars drop like flied due to injuries and defeat, with Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray, the men’s No. 1 and No. 2 ranked players respectively, still standing, and Serena Williams blasting her way through the women’s field. Watch tennis’ remaining favorites try to outlast a hungry field by live streaming here.
On the men’s side, Rafael Nadal was wiped out on Day 1 of Wimbledon by Steve Darcis, who entered the tournament as the world’s No. 135, while Roger Federer bowed out not too much later to Sergiy Stakovsky.
On the women’s side, No. 5 Sara Errani was erased on Day 1 and No. 2 Victoria Azarenka fell awkwardly on her knee in the first round. Azarenka howled in pain, before rising, and finishing her opening round victory while clearly hobbled. She withdrew from Wimbledon before her second round match.
Maria Sharapova is gone as well, after getting into a public spat with Williams that could have been a distraction to her. Meanwhile, a new star, 19-year-old Puerto Rican Monica Puig is trying to put away No. 17 Sloane Stephens.
Today, Djokovic will be in action against Tommy Haas, the No. 13-ranked German, while Murray will face off against Mikhail Youzhny, the 20th-ranked Russian.
Men’s No. 4 David Ferrer, a Spaniard, has already advanced to the quarterfinals after a 6-7, 7-6, 6-1, 6-1 victory against Croatian Ivan Dodig. Speaking on his win, Ferrer said, “It was a complicated match. He served well throughout and made it tough for me. I tried to forget the second set. In the third set I tried to be more consistent because I knew that he was wearing down. I knew that in the third I needed to be consistent because so much depended on the first serve and a break could be critical.”
