Champions knocked out of Wimbledon

This year's two grand Slam Champions at the Australian Open and the French have both been knocked out of Wimbledon.

Maria Sharapova winner of the Australian Open in January lost to Alla Kudryavtseva in the second round in straight sets.

The the winner of the French Open and current world number one Ana Ivanovic was knocked out by a player 132 places down the ranking Jie Zheng.

I think Ivanovic's defeat was not that surprising given that she just managed to win her second round match against Nathalie Dechy. In that match she saved two match points as she eventually won in three sets.

I think she was very fortunate to reach the third round and her exit leaves the door open possibly for Jelena Jankovic.

Meanwhile on the men side of the draw Roger Federer will meet Lleyton Hewitt in the fourth round. This could be the end of Hewitt's participation at this year's Wimbledon because is playing well and maybe only Rafael Nadal can stop him.

Hewitt is the only Australian left at the All England Club after Casey Dellacqua was knocked out by Nicole Vaidisova.
