Ivanovic out--not the biggest shocker of the day
Zheng Jie signs autographs in Charleston; she proably signed a lot of them today
World number 1 and top seed Ana Ivanovic made a third round exit from Wimbledon today. For many of us, this was not a surprise. Ivanovic herself said that everything just went too fast for her.
What was shocking, however, was the second round doubles exit of number 2 seeds Ai Sugiyama and Katarina Srebotnik, who lost to the unseeded team of Raquel Kops-Jones and Abigail Spears, two Americans, who beat them, 2-6, 6-3, 11-9.
