On Wednesday, the women's bracket of the 2012 Wimbledon Championships took a hit as both Caroline Wozniacki and Sam Stosur were upset in their matches.
The No. 5 seeded Stosur fell to her opponent, Arantxa Rus of the Netherlands, 6-2, 0-6, 6-4. After dropping the first set, Stosur looked like she was on the ropes prior to battling back in the second set. Ultimately, Stosur seemed to lose her composure and ended up losing the match.
No. 7 seeded Wozniacki fell to Austria's Tamira Paszek in three sets, 5-7, 7-6 (11), 6-4. The match was carried over from Tuesday night and picked up tied 2-2 in the first set. Paszek was aggressive throughout the match, scoring 54 winners to 31 for Wozniacki, and as a result will be advancing to the second round of the tournament.
Maria Sharapova's match was suspended due to fading light and will be resumed on Thursday. Sharapova took the first set 7-6 (10), and led 3-1 over Tsvetana Pironkova in the second set before play was suspended. Sharapova had won a break when play was ended and will serve when the match resumes on Thursday.
