Wimbledon 2012 has not been kind to stars. Rafael Nadal is out. Roger Federer was almost taken down. Samantha Stosur is gone.

For those stars who are still in action, they are looking to avoid upsets, and that trend will continue on Saturday as we finish the third round.

Some stars have already punched their tickets to the quarterfinals. Among them are top-ranked Novak Djokovic and Maria Sharapova, as well as Federer and Agnieszka Radwanska.

However, many stars are still looking to take that next step to winning it all at the All-England Club, and this is how you can watch all of these stars.


Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

The No. 5 player in the world probably has the best chance of anyone to take down tennis' big three. While he would only have to face one of them in the finals because Nadal lost, he will still look to impress against Lukas Lacko.


Victoria Azarenka

After losing her No. 1 ranking in the world with a poor showing at the French Open, Azarenka is looking to recapture her title by winning it all at Wimbledon. Her next opponent is Jana Cepelova of Slovakia. Cepelova will be her toughest test, and Azarenka will look to avoid a similar upset at the All-England Club as the one she suffered at Roland Garros.

David Ferrer

In possibly the match of the day, No. 7 David Ferrer will be taking on American veteran Andy Roddick. Roddick seems to be benefiting from stars losing, as he has the potential to make a deep run if he can take out Ferrer. However, the Spaniard is looking to prove that he should be among the big names in tennis.


Andy Murray

Murray might be the biggest winner from Nadal's loss to Lukas Rosol. He is now the favorite to come out of the bottom half of the bracket and make it to the finals. However, he needs to stay focused and avoid an upset against Marcos Baghdatis of Cyprus if he is going to live up to expectations.

Serena Williams

The brightest star of the day, Williams is arguably the most popular women's tennis player in the world. Indeed she has the most Twitter followers. She is still looking to avenge her first-round loss at the French, and the only way she can do so is with a deep run in London. Her next test will come against No. 25 Jie Zheng.
