LONDON (Reuters) - Andy Roddicks dream of finally winning Wimbledon is on hold for another year after he was out-gunned by a left-handed Spaniard on Friday, not reigning champion Rafa Nadal but Feliciano Lopez whose tennis lived up to his nickname. With Nadal relegated to Court One for his third-round clash later against Gilles Muller, Lopez gleefully stole the limelight from his close friend with a sensational 7-6, 7-6, 6-4 victory he described as his best on grass. Big names were also tumbling across the All England Club in the womens draw with second seed Vera Zvonareva sent packing by Bulgarias Tsvetana Pironkova in a repeat of last years semi-final which Zvonareva won before losing to Serena Williams. Svetlana Kuznetsova also lost but fifth seed Maria Sharapova is still eyeing a repeat of her 2004 title here despite a scare against British wildcard Laura Robson. Five-times champion Venus Williams made life easier for herself after her second-round epic against Kimiko Date-Krumm, dropping a mere two games against Maria Jose Martinez Sanchez to move menacingly into the last 16. World number one Caroline Wozniacki is still a round behind after getting snagged by rain delays but the Dane made up for lost time by thrashing Frenchwoman Virginie Razzano 6-1, 6-3 and committing just one unforced error in the match. Lopez, whose Hollywood looks have earned him the nickname Deliciano was simply irresistible as he served and volleyed eighth seed Roddick to pieces. American Roddick has become a fixture at Wimbledon where his grass-scorching serve and all-action style have fired him to three runner-up finishes at the hands of Roger Federer. He had no answer against the net-prowling Lopez who had lost all seven previous clashes with Roddick and who has never gone beyond the last eight here despite a style that appears purpose-built for grass. Roddick, whose most recent final was a marathon defeat by Federer in 2009, had no complaints. This years a lot easier to deal with than last year where I feel like I gave it away, the 28-year-old said, referring to last years fourth-round defeat by Yen-Hsun Lu. I got beat. He came out. He served about as well as someone has. He played an outstanding match. Roddick, who chucked a racket into the crowd as left the court to a generous ovation, insisted he will be back fighting his corner in 12 months despite admitting he had not played well for a year. I figured it was just going to go to waste like a doorstop or something, a jovial Roddick said of his post-match gesture. I figured a seven-year-old boy would probably get more use out of it than my grasscourt bottoms. At this point Ive not decided to stop so Ill keep moving forward. With Centre Court open to the elements again after Thursdays drizzle had kept the roof closed the sun occasionally burst through the clouds and Roddick responded with a string of early aces. In match resembling an old-fashioned gunfight, Roddick blinked first to drop serve but fired back immediately to take the opener into a tiebreak. Lopez played the smarter tennis to win the tiebreak and repeated the feat to win another one and leave Roddick on the brink. One break in the decider was enough for the Spaniard set up a last-16 meeting with Gael Monfils or Lukasz Kubot. To beat Andy in this court is very special, of course. I would say maybe the best (win at Wimbledon) probably, the modest Lopez, who crashed 57 outright winners, said. I was surprised that I didnt miss anything. Overall I think I played an unbelievable match. Sharapova found herself 4-1 down against wildcard Robson, the 17-year-old world number 254 still trying to live up to the hype of her Wimbledon junior title in 2008. The Russian fifth seed got increasingly tetchy as the crowd, who were later to set to cheer on home hope Andy Murray against Ivan Ljubicic, sensed a shock. She fought back, however, won the tiebreak with the help of a narrow Hawkeye decision at 5-4 and surged ahead in the second set to put Robson back in her place. I dont think she had anything to lose, a relieved Sharapova told reporters. I think that brings out the best in someone when they go out and they play free and they just go for the lines. Second seed Vera Zvonareva lost 6-2, 6-3 to Bulgarian Tsvetana Pironkova in the third round. Pironkova gained some revenge for her defeat by Russian Zvonareva in last year's semi-finals with a clinical display in which she made only five unforced errors. The 23-year-old Pironkova, seeded 32nd, completed victory in one hour 17 minutes. Elsewhere Friday, seventh-seeded David Ferrrer defeated Ryan Harrison of the United States 6-7 (8), 6-1, 4-6, 6-3, 6-2. The match had been suspended by darkness Thursday night in the fourth set. In womens play, 2007 runner-up and No. 9-seeded Marion Bartoli beat Lourdes Dominguez Lino 4-6, 7-5, 6-2 to reach the third round. Former No. 1-ranked Svetlana Kuznetsova, seeded 12th, was eliminated in the third round by No. 19 Yanina Wickmayer, 4-6, 6-3, 6-4. Meanwhile, the biggest surprise of the tournament came Thursday when French Open champion Li Na was eliminated in three sets by Sabine Lisicki, a German wild card ranked 62nd, , losing 3-6, 6-4, 8-6 after squandering two match points in the decisive set. In the men's draw, six-time champion Roger Federer, bidding to equal Pete Sampras's record of seven Wimbledon titles, destroyed French journeyman Adrian Mannarino in the final match of the day, winning 6-2, 6-3, 6-2 in less than 90 minutes.
