Upset of the day 1:
Last year’s runner-up Andy Roddick crashes out to Yen-Hsun Lu in 5 sets. Roddick lost in five gruelling sets, surrendering 9-7 in the last after four-and-a-half hours. Lu became the first Chinese Taipei player to reach the quarterfinals of a Grand Slam, and the first man from Asia to reach the quarterfinals at a Major in fifteen years.

Upset of the day 2: Petra Kvitova defeats Caroline Wozniacki 6-0 6-2
Really can somebody explain me, how you can be world number 3 and lose 0 and 2 to a player who had never won a match at Wimbledon before this year. Really? Wozniacki’s Grand Slam performance are really disappointing since last year’s US Open final. It’s time to wake up, Caroline.

Battle of Belgium:
It was Manic Monday’s most expected match, and comeback queens Justine Henin and Kim Clijsters didn’t disappoint.
Their last meeting on grass was in the semifinals of Wimbledon 2006 and Henin won it. This time Kim overpowered Justine in 3 sets: 2-6 6-2 6-3. Kim leads now their head to head 13-12.

Battle of Wimbledon champions:
Serena Williams defeated Maria Sharapova 7-6 6-4, she will meet Li Na who beat the former Wimbledon junior champion Agnieszka Radwanska 6-3 6-2.

Other results: Nadal, Federer and Murray cruise through quarterfinals in straight sets. Djokovic defeated former Wimbledon champion Lleyton Hewitt in 4 sets.

Today’s women’s quarterfinals:
Serena Williams vs. Li Na
Petra Kvitova vs. Kaia Kanepi
Kim Clijsters vs. Vera Zvonareva
Tsvetana Pironkova vs. Venus Williams
Pretty difficult to be excited for those matches, what do you think?

Men’s quarterfinals:
Roger Federer vs. Tomas Berdych
Novak Djokovic vs Yen-Hsun Lu
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs Andy Murray
Robin Soderling vs Rafael Nadal

A limited quantity of his sweater was made available for sale at Niketown London but sold out almost immediately!

adidas: we bring you Stan Smith

At a height of 6’4”, his perennial mustache and that iconic smile, Stan Smith looked more as retired coach on the sideline, a guise Smith happily served up till he steps onto the tennis court. As formidable as he was in the 70s, when the Wimbledon and U.S. Open champ racked up 54 titles during his professional career, along with the #1 world ranking position in 1972. It was also the year adidas approached Smith for his own signature sneaker, forever known as the Stan Smith.

Followed the blueprint of another adidas styling, the Haillet, Stan Smith (the shoe) was, and still is, a simple fare of premium white leather with green accents on the logo patch and heel tab, as if not to upset the stringent dress code of Wimbledon. One other feature, or the lack of, are the adidas 3 stripes. Instead, 3 rows of perforation take its place along the sidewall.

adidas Originals created 2 videos to celebrate the man, his shoes, and most of all, his accomplishments.
