Goerges stuns Radwanska
Wimbledon - Rain sent Olympic tennis indoors for the first time in 100 years on Sunday, when Julia Goerges of Germany notched a first-round upset win over No 2-seed Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland under Wimbledon's retractable roof.
Goerges beat this year's Wimbledon runner-up 7-5, 6-7 (5/7), 6-4.
Showers delayed the start of play and prompted tournament officials to close the Centre Court roof for the match, which began only five minutes late. Play on 11 uncovered courts began after a delay of nearly three hours.
The indoor match was the first in the Olympics since the 1912 Games in Stockholm, played in a pavilion on wood courts painted black.
