The story of the day at Wimbledon was the surprising departure of Serena Williams, who got beat by Sabine Lisicki in the fourth round, her earliest exit from a Grand Slam since the 2012 French Open. Williams had won three of the last four majors heading into Wimbledon and was the heavy favorite to snag her 17th Grand Slam, but it was Lisicki who stopped her path to history.

Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray both cruised to straight set wins, and American Sloane Stephens continues her run at a first Grand Slam title with her win over Monica Puig.

Great Britain's Laura Robson couldn't continue her run to a potential Wimbledon final, getting beat by Kaia Kanepi in straight sets.

The best match of the day belonged to Jerzy Janowicz and Jurgen Melzer, who went five sets with Janowicz eventually advancing to the fourth round for the first time in a Grand Slam.

Melzer won the fourth set to set up the deciding fifth set, but the youngster Janowicz was too much, taking the Austrian out 6-4 in the final set.

There is nothing that will compare to the upset of Serena Williams that Sabine Lisicki pulled off on Monday at Wimbledon. Serena had won 10 straight matches at Wimbledon and 34 straight matches this year heading into Monday, but Lisicki was able to push Williams around, coming back from a 0-3 hole in the final set to win her match and advance to her second straight Wimbledon quarterfinals.

The Bryan brothers are attempting to sweep the doubles Grand Slams this year, and their win on Monday was capped off by their usual chest-bump celebration.

When an 18-time major winner is in the crowd, he's the celebrity of the day, and that was Jack Nicklaus on Monday at Wimbledon.

Is it possible to close the roof on this outfit?

There will be little rest of the ladies, who all hit the court on Tuesday in their quarterfinals matches.

Sloane Stephens faces Marion Bartoli in the late match on Court 1, with the rest of the draws for Tuesday right here.
