After recovering from a fall on the slick turf, and a brief deficit, Serena Williams reeled off the last nine games to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals.
The defending champion dominated down the stretch once the Centre Court roof was closed and eliminated two-time major title winner Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 6-0 on Monday. Williams won 24 of 29 points in the second set and finished with a 43-8 advantage in winners.
The No. 1-seeded American slipped during a point while she was getting broken to trail 5-4 in the opening set of the fourth-round match. Kuznetsova then served for that set, but Williams broke right back to make it 5-all.
That’s when play was delayed for nearly 30 minutes while the retractable roof was shut.
After they resumed, Kuznetsova did not take a game.
Seeking her seventh Wimbledon title and 22nd Grand Slam trophy overall, Williams next faces 21st-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova of Russia.
