Wimbledon 2012 Scores And Results: Rafael Nadal Shocked By Lukas Rosol On Day 4

Day 4 at the 2012 Championship at Wimbledon saw the biggest upset of the tournament yet. Men's No. 2 seed Rafael Nadal, fresh off a win at the French Open, was upset by the 100th-ranked men's player in the world, Lukas Rosol, 6-7 (20), 6-4, 6-4, 2-6, 6-4. Rosol, hailing from the Czech Republic, is the lowest-ranked player to ever defeat the Spanish champion at a Grand Slam tournament.

Otherwise, the favorites seemed to take care of business Thursday at the All England Club. Americans Mardy Fish and Andy Roddick both advanced. Fish is playing in his first Grand Slam tournament since the Australian Open after undergoing a May 23 procedure to correct his heart arrhythmia. He defeated James Ward in a thriller, 6-3, 5-7, 6-4, 6-7 (10), 6-3. Roddick advanced to the third round, defeating Bjorn Phau, 6-3, 7-6, 6-3.

On the women's side of the draw, Serena Williams advanced easily over Melinda Czink of Hungaria, 6-1, 6-4. No. 2 Maria Sharapova won her continuation from Wednesday's match against Bulgaria's Tsvetana Pironkova, 7-6 (10), 6-7 (10), 6-0. Teaneck, NJ, native Christina McHale with a 7-5, 7-5, win over Mathilde Johansson of France.
