The runs for two of the biggest stories at the 2012 Championship at Wimbledon, No. 10 Mardy Fish and No. 15 Sabine Lisicki, came to an end Tuesday at the All England club. Fish was playing in his first Grand Slam event since undergoing surgery to correct his heart arrhythmia. He fell to No. 5 Jo-Wilfired Tsonga in four sets, 4-6, 7-6 (11), 6-4, 6-4. Lisicki lost to No. 8 Angelique Kerber, 6-3, 6-7 (16), 7-5, coming off a stunning upset of No. 1 Maria Sharapova in the fourth round.
Fish won the first set in his match against Tsonga, 6-4, and was tied 1-1 in the second set Monday before rain suspended play until Tuesday. Fish served well, scoring on 86 percent of his eligible first serves, but also committed 27 unforced errors to 17 for his opponent. Fish was the last remaining American on the men's draw.
Lisicki also played a tight match, but couldn't make her aggressive play pay off as it did against Sharapova. She scored 57 winners to 19 for Kerber, but also committed 50 unforced errors to 13 over the course of the match. Kerber put Lisicki on her heels throughout the match, taking her to break point 19 times and converting eight.
