When the players step on the grass at the All England Club to showcase their talents at Wimbledon, there's a different feeling watching it on television.

The passion and desire to win is elevated because of how important the event is to all involved. 

So far, with a couple of exceptions, this year's Wimbledon has been straightforward. Of course, we are only two full days in, so there is plenty of time for upsets to happen.

They come every year, sometimes later than others, but pay close attention to how players look now to inform your viewing in the coming days. 

As we examine the latest results from England, we've got a closer look at the notable winners/results so far.

Notable Scores and Winners

No. 30 Venus Williams Advances to 3rd Round

Venus Williams hasn't played a significant role at Wimbledon since an appearance in the quarterfinals four years ago. She lost in the fourth round in 2011, first round in 2012 and didn't play last year. 

At 34 years old, Williams certainly doesn't have much time left. That doesn't mean the five-time Wimbledon champion is going quietly into that good night. She's won her first two matches, including a straight set victory over Kurumi Nara on Wednesday at the All England Club and awaits a third-round opponent. 

The win looks even better because, as Sports Illustrated's Tennis Twitter feed noted, it showed her resolve after falling behind in the first set.

It sounds condescending to call Williams an early feel-good story because she's got talent and won an event this year, but given her age and the health issues she deals with, you can't help but hope that there's one more big run at Wimbledon in her. 

 

No. 2 Rafael Nadal Struggles in 1st Round

Going back to Tuesday, Rafael Nadal has never found the grass at the All England Club very welcoming. He's won here twice but hasn't made it past the second round since 2011.

The No. 2 seed on the gentlemen's side looked vulnerable in a three-set win over Martin Klizan. 

Looking at the glass half full, Nadal was able to get the win and provided some dramatics along the way with this brilliant point, courtesy of SportsCenter. 

However, the win was another indication that Wimbledon isn't made for Nadal. He was able to hide those deficiencies in the past, when the only significant competition was Roger Federer, but he's getting older (by tennis standards) at 28 and doesn't get around as well as he used to on grass.

There's time for a dramatic turnaround, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Nadal make another early exit from the All England Club.

 

No. 7 David Ferrer Becomes Highest Gentleman to Fall

In our first major upset of the event, Spain's David Ferrer became the first top-10 seed to lose in a five-set battle with Russian Andrey Kuznetsov.

Ferrer had a strong 2013 season that included a quarterfinal appearance at Wimbledon, a semifinal appearance at the Australian Open and a finals appearance at the French Open before losing to Nadal in straight sets.

This year started off well enough for the 32-year-old, as he made it to the quarterfinals at the Australian Open and French Open, but Wimbledon proved to be a more difficult task.

In fact, this will be the first Grand Slam event Ferrer hasn't made the quarterfinals since the 2011 U.S. Open. 

Unless you think this was just some random occurrence, The Tennis Nerds made it abundantly clear on Twitter that Kuznetsov shone in this match.

Wimbledon doesn't officially start until a top 10 player goes down, so now that it's happened, dark clouds loom large for the other top seeds in the event.
