Wildcard Alison Riske reaches third round of Wimbledon

Tennis: USA's Alison Riske reached the 3rd round of the 2013 Wimbledon Tennis Championship, as the wildcard entrant defeated world no.44 Urszula Radwanska of Poland in three sets 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. The 22-year-old Riske, who would turn 23 on Wednesday, had never won a grand slam match before and victory in the first round was her first grand slam win of career, but the world no.

126 looked determined to make out the most of the opportunity that she got. Riske dropped the first set 6-4 against the sister of world no.4 Agnieszka Radwanska but then fought her way back to win the second set 6-3 and then won the third set 6-4, which lasted for more than an hour. She will face Kaia Kanepi of Estonia for a place in the 4th round.
