There were no surprises today at Wimbledon. Some players had to work a bit harder than others, but overall, things turned out "as expected." Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova lost just five games between them in their respective second round matches, putting them even closer on course to a likely quarterfinal meeting. 2013 finalist Sabine Lisicki faced another big server in Karolina Pliskova, but the German prevailed in straight sets. And Eugine Bouchard had to fight in her first set against Silvia Soler-Espinosa, but then won the second set handily.
Angelique Kerber proved to be too much for Heather Watson to handle, but Watson did take a set off of Kerber, which was impressive. Britain's number one player has had some really good wins lately. Every time a major rolls around, though, she gets the draw from hell.
Madison Keys beat 31st seed Klara Koukaova, but it didn't really seem like an upset. More of an upset was Zarina Diyas's victory over 15th seed Carla Suarez Navarro. Diyas is a very aggressive player who should feel right at home on grass.
Alison Riske advanced to the third round with a win over Camila Giorgi, and Vera Zvonareva continued her comeback with a 6-4, 6-4 win over Donna Vekic.
In doubles, the French team of Alize Cornet and Caroline Garcia beat the Chan sisters.
Tomorrow, Petra Kvitova will play Venus Williams, and Michelle Larcher De Brito will have a go at Aga Radwanska. Also of interest: Belinda Bencic vs. Vicky Duval.
