Wimbledon Results 2011: Roger Federer Breezes Through To Third

Match results from Day 4 of Wimbledon 2011, where (brace yourselves for a terrible shock) afternoon showers have delayed multiple matches at the All England Club.

Roger Federer def. Adrian Mannarino, 6-2 6-3 6-2. If possible, this match was even more lopsided than the scoreboard indicated. With the Centre Court roof closed against the rain that washed out most of the rest of the day's action, the two were able to complete their play at the leisurely hour of 9:25. And Federer was clearly at his ease: the penultimate point was an undisputed ace, and he made Mannarino look downright silly on match point, with a caper that made announcers openly swoon and reminisce of the days of Sampras. Next up for the Maestro: A potential trap match with No. 28 David Nalbandian.

Other Day 4 match results, from those lucky few that actually played to completion, featured a number of mid-draw upsets: No. 18 Mikhail Youzhny dispatched Somdev Devvarman in straight sets, but No. 13 Agnieszka Radwanska, No. 26 Guillermo Garcia-Lopez, No. 20 Florian Mayer, and No. 13 Viktor Troicki all fell to unseeded opponents.

Players affected by Thursday's rain delay include No. 5 Maria Sharapova, No. 1 Caroline Wozniacki, and No. 9 Marion Bartoli, whose second-round matched were canceled outright, along with the Bryan brothers, whose first-round doubles match was delayed for the third time. Unseeded American Ryan Harrison, who's taken No. 7 David Ferrer to four sets so far, and No. 11 Jurgen Melzer, himself in a fourth set against Dmitry Tursunov, will complete their matches Friday (all together now: weather permitting).

Day 5 of Wimbledon 2011 will commence play Friday morning, at 7 a.m. EDT.
