Wimbledon 2010 results for week one may be the most memorable ever. The results made Wimbledon history in one case, and almost threw the whole bracket into chaos. But this opening week was technically a preliminary stage, as the meat of the tournament is set to begin. Soon, there will be other things to talk about besides a 70-68 fifth set, as the chase for championships becomes serious. There have already been serious scares along the way, as the 2010 Wimbledon results have narrowly held form, but just barely.
Yesterday, John Isner officially bowed out, in very short fashion this time around. His 74 minute-long defeat was a bitter asterisk to his historic time here. But the tournament must go on, as the third and fourth rounds will be held this weekend.
Today’s Wimbledon results will have Rafael Nadal, Serena Williams and Andy Murray in action for round three. Williams has already made it through, defeating Dominika Cibulkova, 6-0, 7-5. She joins Venus Williams in the round of 16, as the Williams sisters have been relatively unscathed thus far.
After the two French Open finalists were upset in round one, the Wimbledon 2010 results have been fairly conventional for the women. Third seeded Caroline Wozniacki also won in straight sets today, along with seventh seed Agnieszka Radwanska and ninth seed Na Li. Once again, it seems that the chaos from today will come from the men.
Wimbledon results for Thursday were all about the end of Isner vs Mahut. However, it overshadowed a substantial scare for Rafael Nadal, who was pushed to the fifth set. Today, he may have another problem on his hands against Philipp Petzschner, as they have split the first two sets.
Roger Federer’s problems thus far are already well detailed. Yet he rebounded for a straight set win yesterday, as he may be able to work the kinks out yet. But as Federer may get stronger, Nadal could be getting weaker.
The difficult Wimbledon 2010 results for Federer and Nadal are promising for the other male contenders. Andy Murray will seek an easier time against Gilles Simon today, while Robin Soderling has won in straight sets over Thomaz Bellucci. Meanwhile, the man who defeated Isner, Thiemo De Bakker, has fittingly gone through three tiebreakers against Paul-Henri Mathieu.
Tomorrow, the tournament will officially move into week two, as the big names are still around to provide star power. But the Wimbledon 2010 results have not been smooth for all of them, even though the really hard parts still lie ahead.
