The 2012 Championships at Wimbledon are beginning to solidify the Round of 16. Two of the players who earned a berth into that fourth round on Friday were men's No. 1 seed Novak Djokovic and women's No. 1 seed Maria Sharapova.
Sharapova had little difficulty dispatching of her third round opponent on Friday, as she defeated unseeded Su-Wei Hsieh in straight sets, 6-1, 6-4. Hsieh showed fight in the second set, but Sharapova was able to clamp down and put her away to advance.
Djokovic, meanwhile, looked exceptionally shaky in his first set against No. 28 seed Radek Stepanek, dropping the opener before appearing to clear his head and really focus on making his shots. Djokovic looked on top of his game after an uneasy start and won handily in four sets, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2, 6-2.
