Wimbledon 2012 Scores And Results: Venus Williams Out Early; Djokovic Advances

The first round of play at Wimbledon began Monday. Already, the 2012 tournament has suffered a high-profile casualty in the early going, with Venus Williams eliminated from women's singles play.

Elena Vesnina beat Williams in two straight sets by a score of 6-1, 6-3. Monday's loss is the latest in what has been a disappointing stretch for Williams, who was dispatched much early than many thought at the 2012 French Open.

Beyond Williams' loss, things have proceeded mostly as expected on the women's side. No. 5 Samantha Stosur and No. 3 Agnieszka Radwanska both won in early matches on Monday. Top-seeded Maria Sharapova takes on Anastasia Rodionova later in the day.

On the men's side, No. 1 Novak Djokovic cruised past Juan Carlos Ferrero in three straight sets.
