Wimbledon: Second Round Seed Casualties

With nary a rain cloud in sight, the Wimbledon Championship continues to to roll on finishing up the second round today. Again most of the favorites on both sides are still alive, but there were still seeds that fell this round.

Most notable were Juan Martin Del Potro (5) who was defeated by former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt and Maria Sharapova (24) who lost in three sets to Gisela Dulko. The other seeds who fell were Jie Zheng (16), Rainer Schuettler (18), Alisa Kleybanova (27), and Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova (31).

Finally, Fabrice Santoro was also defeated. He is unseeded but since this is his last Wimbledon I thought he deserved a shout out.
