2012 Wimbledon Day 2: Kvitova, Nadal, Serena, Vika Win

On Day 2 of this year's Wimbledon Championships there was no repeat of the upset fireworks that occurred on Day 1. The last two women's champions at Wimbledon, Serena Williams (2010) and Petra Kvitova (2011), both advanced in surprisingly complicated straight-sets matches, 6-2 6-4 and 6-4 6-4, respectively.
Other players to watch who won today were Victoria Azarenka(2), Marion Bartoli, Vera Zvonareva, and Francesca Schiavone. 2-time major champion Svetlana Kuznetsova crashed out in the 1st round.

On the men's side Rafael Nadal(2) lost the first 4 games of his match against Thomaz Belluci but then managed to win a first set tiebreak and cruised to a straight-sets win. Jo-Wilfried Tsonga(5) dismissed 2-time major champion Lleyton Hewitt in straight sets while Andy Murray(4) easily beat former World #3 Nikolay Davydenko. Other notable winners were Juan Martin del Potro, Marin Cilic, Kei Nishikori and Philip Kohlschreiber. Feliciano Lopez was upset.
