South Africa’s Kevin Anderson Falls On A Day Of Shocks At Wimbledon

South Africa’s Kevin Anderson was a fourth round Wimbledon casualty on Monday at the hands of defending champion Andy Murray.  The Scot won 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 as Anderson pushed him but it was not to be.  2011 champion Novak Djokovic only needed the minimum three sets against Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at the All England Club.  The top seed thrashed the Frenchman 6-3, 6-4, 7-6 to progress.

Fifth seed Stanislas Wawrinka is also through to the fourth round after a 6-3, 6-3, 6-4 victory over Denis Istomin of Uzbekistan.  Wawrinka will play Feliciano Lopez in the Last 16.  Tenth seed Kei Nishikori was also a winner defeating Simone Bolelli 3-6, 6-3, 4-6, 7-6, 6-4 to set up a meeting with Milos Raonic.

In the ladies’ singles Agnieszka Radwanska was shocked by Russia’s Ekaterina Makarova.  Radwanska fell spectacularly 6-3, 6-0.  Former world number one Caroline Wozniacki was also a casualty in London.  The Dane was a 6-3, 7-5 victim at the hands of Barbra Zahlavova Strycova.  Petra Kvitova booked her place in the Last 16.  The 2012 champion ousted Shuai Peng 6-3, 6-2 to progress.  However Ana Ivanovic was the latest seeded casualty.  The Serb fell 4-6, 6-3, 6-1 to last year’s runner-up Sabine Lisicki.
