Wimbledon 2012 Scores And Results: Andy Roddick Loses, Serena Williams Advances

Andy Roddick was cruising in the first set of his match on Saturday and appeared to be a world-beater. Unfortunately for Roddick, you need to win three sets in a match to prevail.

Roddick fell in the 2012 Wimbledon third round against Spain's David Ferrer. The American just couldn't withstand the test of time against Ferrer, who clearly is a player on the rise in the tennis ranks.

Roddick capitulated in four sets after looking amazing in the early stages. He took the opening set 6-2 with a beautiful display of tennis before losing his control on the battle. The seventh-seeded Ferrer got his back in time to right his ship. He'll now move into the quarterfinals after taking out Roddick 2-6, 7-6 (10-8), 6-4, 6-3.

In another match featuring an American, Mardy Fish punched his ticket to the second week, dispatching German-born David Goffin in straight sets. Goffin played well, forcing two tiebreaks with Fish before losing, 6-3, 7-6 (8-6), 7-6 (8-6).

On the women's dockett, Serena Williams gutted out a win over No. 25 Jie Zhang. Williams had to fight the entire way against a gritty and determinedf Zhang before winning in three sets, 6-7 (5-7), 6-2, 9-7.
