Wimbledon 2012 Scores: John Isner, Tomas Berdych Upset Monday

The opening day at the 2012 Championship at Wimbledon has already featured two major upsets on the men's draw. No. 11-seed John Isner lost his opening round match to unseeded Alejandro Falla of Spain. Minutes later, No. 6 Tomas Berdych of the Czech Republic fell to Latvia's Ernests Gulbis.

Isner was the United States' highest-seeded player on the men's side. He fell in five sets--6-4, 6-7 (16), 3-6, 7-6 (16), 7-5--to the Spaniard. Unsurprisingly, the serve was no problem for the 6'9 Isner. He served up 31 aces to just four for his opponent. Fallas committed just 22 unforced errors to 49 for Isner, however. That proved difference in what was an very tightly played match. Isner won 164 total points to 163 for Fallas.

Berdych lost in straight sets to the 23-year-old Gulbis, all in tiebreakers. Gulbis won 7-6 (12), 7-6 (11), 7-6 (11) in another nailbiter. The unseeded Latvian dominated with 62 winners and 30 aces, to 30 and 13 for Berdych. The Czech put 59 percent of his first serves in play, and won just 48 percent of his second serves.
