2012 Wimbledon Results: Mardy Fish, Andy Roddick Win, Rafael Nadal Struggling

Though Detroit native Michael Russell was ousted in the second round of the Wimbledon Championships, the tournament continues on, and most of the matches Thursday have wrapped up. There's still multiple Americans in the tournament, including Minnesota native Mardy Fish, who struggled in his match, but eventually bested James Ward in five sets.

Then there's Andy Roddick, who beat Bjorn Phau in straight-sets, including a second set tiebreak. Another American, Sam Querrey, is in danger of being eliminated though as he takes on the No. 21 seed, Milos Raonic. That match is still in progress, with both players having taken a set in a tiebreak. Also of note on the day are wins by Juan Martin del Potro, Andy Murray, Jo-Wilfriend Tsonga and massive struggles by world No. 2 Rafael Nadal.

At the time of writing, Nadal has gone to the fifth set with the world No. 100 Lukas Rosol, who is unseeded in the tournament. Nadal had fortune on his side when Rosol made multiple mistakes in the tiebreak of the first set, allowing Nadal to get the 7-6 (11-9) tiebreak win. But Rosol battled back to take sets two and three 6-4, 6-4. Nadal won the fourth set 6-2 and, at the time of writing, play has just been suspended in the fifth set.
