Game Point is Busted Racquet's roundup of news, links and stats from around the web.
Love -- Thomaz Bellucci won the first four games of his match against Rafael Nadal on Tuesday. He then lost six of the next eight, was bageled in the first-set tiebreak and sputtered to the finish against the No. 2 seed. The rest of the day's matches on Centre Court weren't much better. Petra Kvitova overcame an early break to begin her title defense with a 6-4, 6-4 win and Andy Murray gave the home crowd a thrill with an easy 1-1-4 victory over the dangerous Nikolay Davydenko.
15 -- Caroline Wozniacki was also on Centre Court on Tuesday. Serena Williams was on Court No. 2. She appeared to be as pleased with the decision as you'd expect, but didn't take the bait when pressed about it. Serena did, however, quoth the bard. "But as Kelly Clarkson says, 'What doesn't kill you makes you stronger,'" she said after her 6-2, 6-4 win.
30 -- Speaking of Wozniacki, her match was suspended at 2-2 in the first set because of rain and darkness. "But isn't there a roof on Centre Court?" you might ask. "Couldn't they have closed it?" you may suggest. "Yeah, I don't get it either," I'll respond.
40 -- Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oy, oy, oy gevalt. For the first time since 1938, no Australian men will be in the second round of Wimbledon. Lleyton Hewitt and Bernard Tomic were among the losers from down under.
