Wimbledon doubles update

Today was the big day at Wimbledon in singles, and--unlike some of the tournament's mythology--it lived up to its reputation. Women Who Serve like to keep everyone updated about doubles, too, however. There was only one doubles match played today, and it was an upset. Elena Vesnina and Vera Zvonareva (that's Wimbledon semifinalist, Vera Zvonareva) defeated 12th seeds Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova 6-3, 6-2.

In mixed doubles, 10th seeds Marcelo Melo and Rennae Stubbs defeated 6th seeds Bethanie Mattek-Sands and Daniel Nestor, and 11th seeds Lisa Raymond and Wesley Moodie defeated 7th seeds Alisa Kleybanova and Max Mirnyi. Also winning in the third round were the teams of Yaroslava Shvedova and Julian Knowle, Vera Dushevina and Dmitry Tursonov, and Chan Yung-Jan and Paul Hanley.
