Upsets were the story of the first day at Wimbledon, which wasn't kind to some of the top Americans in the tournament. Both Venus Williams and John Isner were dumped out of the tournament, along with No. 6 seeded man Tomas Berdych. Williams and Berdych were both very much off their games in straight-set defeats, while Isner went down in a tough five-set match against Alejandro Falla.
While those upsets were surprising, the tournament's biggest names weren't tested at all on Day 1 of The Championships. Roger Federer, Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova all cruised through their matches comfortably in straight sets. Andreas Seppi was the only ranked man other than Isner and Berdych to fall on Monday. Ranked women Flavia Pennetta, Monica Niculescu, Jelena Jankovic and Christina McHale all lost.
American women Sloane Stephens and Jamie Hampton both advanced, while Melanie Oudin was eliminated. In the men's draw, James Blake and Donald Young lost, while Ryan Harrison advanced to the second round.
