Wimbledon Recap: Day 1

Victoria Azarenka's back and winning! After her straight sets win she talked about how happy she is to be back playing and pain free. "I was just really happy to play. It's a beautiful court. It's a beautiful tournament." We are happy to have you back too, Vika... and love the return of the shorts!

ESPN.comIt wasn't such good news for Sloane Stephens, Garbine Muguruza or Sam Stosur, who all lost on Day 1. Sloane's loss meant the end of her run at making the second week in six consecutive majors. Sloane admitted she was upset but said it wasn't the end of the world, which is pretty much what she says every time. Sam Stosur's loss wasn't a surprise to anyone who has followed her grass court career, but Muguruza was considered a bit of a dark horse after her Roland Garros quarter-final appearance. Muguruza saved twelve match points but double-faulted on unlucky thirteen.

Andy Murray made himself even more of a hero in London when not only did he win his match against David Goffin in straight sets, he saved a dog on the way to Wimbledon. Murray stopped traffic to rescue the pup and then returned the dog to its very lucky owner.

"I was driving to practice and there was a dog running along the road,” he told BBC Radio Five Live. “I parked the car and got out and tried to stop the traffic because the dog was running towards the oncoming traffic. I ran into the road, stopped the traffic and I managed to get the dog onto the back seat of my car."

“Then I drove to the place where all of the people walk their dogs, which is literally just round the corner. I called the number on the tag and amazingly my two dogs walk with that dog quite a lot. I met the owner and she was happy I’d picked it up."

No shit she was happy, Murray, not only did she get her dog back but it was returned to her by tennis royalty!

A few hopeful Americans were predicting an upset loss for Grigor Dimitrov when he took on Ryan Harrison, but instead the Dimi half of Dimipova cruised to victory in straight sets. It's more disappointment for Harrison, and more of a reason Dimitrov is considered a dark horse for the title. 

In other non-events, Novak Djokovic and Li Na both won. However, Jo Wilfried Tsonga will resume his match on day 2 at  6-1 3-6 3-6 6-2 5-4 against Jurgen Melzer. Eek!
