Wimbledon 2012 Day 4: Nadal, Williams, Fish and More

0 of 5

    After three days of outstanding tennis at Wimbledon, we can't wait for a fourth day of action.

    These are the five great storylines to watch on day four, as some of the game's brightest stars are in action once again.

    This is the second time we are seeing all of these players in play, and this could deliver even better tennis than we saw on Tuesday.

Victoria Azarenka Looks to Reclaim No. 1 Ranking

    Victoria Azarenka vs. Romina Oprandi

    Victoria Azarenka was the world's No. 1 tennis player until her poor performance in the French Open ended up costing her that title.

    However, she looks to take it back at Wimbledon, and she had a strong showing in the first round—something she couldn't do at Roland Garros.

    That bodes well for the world's No. 2, and she looks to unseat Maria Sharapova and regain her throne atop the tennis world.

Mardy Fish Looks to Represent Americans

2 of 5

    Mardy Fish vs. James Ward

    With John Isner being ousted in the first round of Wimbledon, Mardy Fish is the highest ranked American left in the field.

    It appears he will be the last American in the field at Wimbledon, and he will continue that run on Thursday.

    His next opponent is Brit James Ward, and the two will face off after Fish won in straight sets in his first match.

    Fish looks to make a deep run at Wimbledon, but he can't look past Ward, who has the potential for a huge upset.

Jo-Wilfried Tsonga Looks to Challenge Big Three

3 of 5

    Jo-Wilfried Tsonga vs. Guillermo Garcia-Lopez

    The biggest threat to the tennis big three of Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal and Roger Federer is none other than Jo-Wilfried Tsonga.

    While Andy Murray has the higher ranking, Tsonga has all the tools necessary to work his way into the competition.

    Tsonga looks to continue his quest to upend the big three against Guillermo Garcia-Lopez on Thursday, after dispatching of Lleyton Hewitt in straight sets in the first round.

    After avoiding a big upset, Tsonga will look to pull off an upset of his own down the road.

Serena Williams Looks to Erase French Open from Minds of Fans

    Serena Williams vs. Melinda Czink

    After an opening round loss in a Grand Slam for the first time in her career at Roland Garros, Serena Williams looks to erase her French Open loss from the minds of fans by impressing at Wimbledon.

    So far she has won her first round match over Barbora Zahlavova Strycova in straight sets.

    Williams looks to continue her dominance in London against Melinda Czink, hoping to rid herself of the demons of Roland Garros.

Rafael Nadal Looks to Win Second Straight Grand Slam

5 of 5

    Rafael Nadal vs. Lukas Rosol

    After winning his seventh French Open title, the King of Clay looks to continue his dominance. He only dropped one set at Roland Garros, and is looking for a repeat performance in London.

    Nadal did well in his first match, dispatching of Thomaz Bellucci in straight sets.

    While he isn't nearly as dominant on grass as he is on clay, his run for a second straight Grand Slam continues on Thursday.
