Alla Kudryavtseva beats Maria Sharapova!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Guest Blogger Rockytoad!

Hi! Rockytoad here! So far, day four in Wimbledon is hectic, and filled with upsets; it's pretty crazy tennis. First off, Nadal lost the first set 7-5, but managed to come back and win the match. Venus Williams beat _____? pretty routinely. I didn't see the score, but I watched the first few games and saw Venus throwing everything that British girl had right back at her, even better. I don't see Venus playing very often, but I could tell she was playing really good tennis at the time. And then James Blake! Losing to Schuettler was a huge upset. You'd think Blake could beat him, but he lost in the fifth set. But the biggest upset of the day, and most suprising, was Sharapova, the number two in the world, losing to Alla Kudryavtseva! Kudryavtseva amazingly beat Sharapova in the first set 6-2, to start out the match. Sharapova was double faulting and making tons of unforced errors, but Alla (I'm just going to call her Alla, since her last name is too crazy) was playing beautifully. Man, that girl has got game! She was smacking winners on deep angles, going left and right, and that kind of playing won her the match.

P.S. It's kind of irrelevant, but Rafa walked up right into the ESPN studio with the commentators due to a miscommunication on an interview time. I thought it was pretty funny.

The Roddick match continues...
