Seeded players fell by the wayside on 27 June 2013 - the third day of the tournament - as they were either overcome by underdogs or injuries. Former champions Roger Federer and Maria Sharapova were humbled by unknowns; while the likes of Victoria Azarenka and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga were forced to withdraw because of injuries.

In all, seven players were forced to withdraw from the championship on the third day. The sorry seven represent the most singles retirements on the same day at a grand slam in the Open Era. [TEXT: Reuters]
