Serena on to Quarterfinals After Steamrolling Kuznetsova
Serena Williams earned her 301st career Grand Slam match victory Monday, winning the final nine games to roll past #13 Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 6-0 at WImbledon's Centre Court to move into the quarterfinals.
Williams trailed 5-4 in the first set, before earning a break to tie. Play was suspended for a time because of wet conditions and when play resumed, the #1 seed was dominant the rest of the way.
Williams will face another Russian, #21 Anastasia Pavlyuchenikova, in her next match.
