Sam Stosur and Lleyton Hewitt were the first mixed doubles
team to advance to the quarterfinals at the London 2012
Olympics after defeating fourth seeds Agnieszka Radwanska
and Marcin Matkovski of Poland.
The Australian duo controlled the match on Court 14 to win
They polished off victory in 59 minutes thanks to four
service breaks, 22 winners and 10 volley winners, twice as
many as their opponents.
The win gives Stosur her first at the London Olympics
following first round defeats in women's singles and
It also helps Hewitt somewhat erase the disappointment of
losing his third round men's singles match to Novak
Djokovic earlier on Wednesday.
The Australians were a wildcard entry into the event -
known officially as an ITF place - and are so far making
the most of their opportunity.
Their next opponents will be the winner of the match
between Brits Laura Robson and Andy Murray, and Lucie
Hradecka and Radek Stepanek of the Czech Republic.
