Wimbledon, England - Top-seeded former champion Novak Djokovic and reigning titlist Andy Murray highlighted Wednesdays second-round winners, while Spanish star David Ferrer went by way of an upset at The Championships, Wimbledon. Keith Smith Jersey . The former world No. 1 Djokovic, who is the top seed here despite being ranked No. 2, snuck past 35-year-old Czech showman Radek Stepanek in four high- quality sets, 6-4, 6-3, 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (7-5), on Centre Court. Djokovic appeared relieved when he converted on his first match point by swatting a cross-court forehand winner that just caught the line to end an affair that featured only two service breaks. The Serbian stalwart saved all five break-point chances he faced and needed 3 hours, 17 minutes to get past his friend Stepanek in perhaps the best match of Week 1 thus far. "I should not have complicated myself this way, but credit to him [Stepanek] for coming up big on some big points," Djokovic said. Djokovic, whos coached by three-time Wimbledon champion Boris Becker, titled here in 2011 and lost to Murray in last years marquee finale. Up next for the French Open runner-up Djokovic will be former top-10 Frenchman Gilles Simon. The third-seeded two-time major champion Murray dropped just two games in blasting 2013 NCAA singles champion Blaz Rola, of Slovenia, 6-1, 6-1, 6-0 on the No. 1 Court at the All England Club, where the Scot has now won his last 15 matches, including an Olympic gold medal run in 2012. The 27-year-old Murray raced past the helpless 23-year-old Rola in 1 hour, 24 minutes. Rola has been playing mainly on the lower-tier Challenger circuit and has very little grass-court experience. Murray beat Djokovic in last years final to give Britain its first male singles Wimbledon champion in 77 years. Up next for the British star will be rising Spaniard Roberto Bautista Agut. Unheralded Russian Andrey Kuznetsov stunned the seventh-seeded former French Open runner-up Ferrer in 6-7 (5-7), 6-0, 3-6, 6-3, 6-2 fashion on the No. 2 Court. Ferrer, who reached the quarterfinals here the previous two years, had been slowed by a stomach ailment over the last two weeks. Ferrers streak of reaching at least the third round at 17 consecutive Grand Slam tournaments came to an end. Meanwhile, sixth-seeded Czech and 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Tomas Berdych snuck past capable Aussie Bernard Tomic 4-6, 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-3), 6-1 and rapidly rising Bulgarian Grigor Dimitrov, seeded 11th at this fortnight, blew past Aussie Luke Saville 6-3, 6-2, 6-4. Dimitrov, whos growing in stature on grass, captured his first-ever ATP-level grass-court title at Londons Queens Club two weeks ago. A Day 3 upset came when Ukrainian Sergiy Stakhovsky ousted 12th-seeded French Open semifinalist Ernests Gulbis, of Latvia, 6-4, 6-3, 7-6 (7-5). Stakhovsky famously stunned Roger Federer in the second round here last year. Sixteenth-seeded Italian Fabio Fognini moved on by overcoming Brit Tim Puetz, 2-6, 6-4, 7-6 (8-6), 6-3 and Taiwans Jimmy Wang upended 17th-seeded Russian veteran Mikhail Youzhny 7-6 (7-1), 6-2, 6-7 (5-7), 6-3. Also, 20th-seeded towering South African Kevin Anderson topped Frenchman Edouard Roger-Vasselin, 7-6 (7-0), 1-6, 6-3, 6-4; 21st-seeded Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov overcame last weeks Den Bosch, Netherlands, runner-up Benjamin Becker, of Germany, 6-7 (4-7), 7-6 (7-0), 6-3, 6-4; 26th-seeded Croat Marin Cilic came back to beat Austrian Andreas Haider-Maurer 3-6, 6-1, 6-4, 6-4; and a hot 27th-seeded Bautista Agut downed Czech Jan Hernych 7-5, 4-6, 6-2, 6-2. Bautista Agut corralled his first-ever ATP title, on grass, last week in The Netherlands. Other second-round results saw Frances Jeremy Chardy outlast Aussie Marinko Matosevic 6-7 (5-7), 7-6 (9-7), 7-6 (11-9), 4-6, 7-5 in 4 hours, 15 minutes, Simon handle Dutchman Robin Haase 7-6 (7-1), 6-4, 6-4, and Argentine Leonardo Mayer dismiss former Aussie Open runner-up and former Wimbledon semifinalist Marcos Baghdatis, of Cyprus, 7-6 (7-4), 4-6, 6-1, 6-4. One match was suspended because of darkness, as 14th-seeded French star Jo-Wilfried Tsonga was tied with American fellow big-server Sam Querrey 4-6, 7-6 (7-2), 6-7 (4-7), 6-3, 9-9 when play was called for the day. Second-round matches will come Thursday for second-seeded world No. 1 Rafael Nadal and the seven-time Wimbledon champ Federer. The 14-time Grand Slam winner Nadal will take on Czech Lukas Rosol, while the fourth-seeded former No. 1 and 17-time major titlist Federer will encounter Luxembourgs Gilles Muller. The big-serving Rosol shocked Nadal in the second round here two years ago. Also on the Day 4 schedule will be fifth-seeded Australian Open champ Stan Wawrinka, eighth-seeded Canadian slugger Milos Raonic, ninth-seeded American John Isner, and 10th seed Kei Nishikori of Japan. Wawrinka will tangle with Taiwans Yen-Hsun Lu, while Raonic will meet American Jack Sock, Isner will encounter Finnish veteran Jarkko Nieminen, and Nishikori will face American Denis Kudla.

The pressure he applies, from set to set, game to game, point to point, shot to shot.CARSON, Calif. -- Gyasi Zardes scored twice to lead the L.A. Galaxy over Chivas USA 3-0 on Sunday. In the 41st minute, Landon Donovan made a run through midfield and found Zardes on the left wing, who fired a one-timer from the top corner of the box past goalkeeper Dan Kennedy for the lead. Robbie Keane faked out Jhon Kennedy Hurtado at the top of the box and lobbed the ball over Kennedy, who was caught in no-mans land, for a 2-0 lead at the 68-minute mark. Anthony Brown Jersey. Zardes made it 3-0 in the 71st minute after a nifty set of passes and misdirection between Donovan and Keane. The Galaxy are 13-5-7, two points off the lead in the Western Conference behind Seattle. Chivas USA falls to 6-13-6 and is mired in a seven-game winless streak -- six straight without goals.
