Wednesday at the 2012 Championships at Wimbledon wrapped up with No. 1 seeds Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova in play. Djokovic advanced with a 6-4, 6-4, 6-4 win over American Ryan Harrison. Maria Sharapova took the first set 7-6 (10), and led 3-1 over Tsvetana Pironkova in the second set before play was suspended until Thursday due to fading light.
The 20-year-old Harrison gave Djokovic a good match. However, he couldn't notch the necessary break that could have turned the tables in any of the three sets. Harrison went 0-for-6 on break chances, compared to an efficient 3-for-3 for Djokovic. Harrison also struggled serving and returning second serves. Djokovic won 82 percent of his second serves, compared to 48 percent for Harrison.
Sharapova had just won a break when play was suspended, and will serve when the match resumes on Thursday.
