Big 4 around Wimbledon’s Week 2, not so for women

The so-called “Big 4” men who have won 35 of 37 of the past Grand Slam singles titles – Novak Djokovic, Rafael Nadal, Andy Murray and Roger Federer – are all around for the second week at Wimbledon, which took Sunday off. The same can’t be said on the women’s side, where top-seeded Serena Williams won’t see any action in Week 2 except in doubles with her sister Venus, who is also out of singles. With Serena out and second-seeded Li Na also a third-round loser, it marks the first time in the Open era that the top two women’s seeds haven’t advanced to Wimbledon’s fourth round.
