Maria Sharapova lost her second- round match at Wimbledon as men’s sixth seed Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and women’s No. 2 seed Victoria Azarenka were among a record seven players who dropped out of the grass-court tournament today.
Serena Williams overcame another mishap to join top-seeded Victoria Azarenka in the third round of the Australian Open on the hottest day so far at the Grand Slam tennis tournament. Roger Federer and Andy Murray also won in straight sets.
Maria Sharapova moved to the third round of the Australian Open with the first back-to-back shutouts in a major in almost three decades. Former U.S. Open champion Samantha Stosur extended a run of flops at her home Grand Slam.
