If she’s going to win her first Grand Slam title in two years, this may be her big opportunity to get it despite her father’s concerns she’s expending too much energy in the last two rounds. .
is setting up perfectly for Serena Williams as many of the big names like Maria
Sharapova, Kim Clijsters, Li Na and Sam Stosur have already fallen
victim to the upset bug
Sixth seeded Serena survived an upset bid by China’s Jie Zheng thanks to unleashing a Wimbledon record 23 aces onslaught to advance in a 2 hour and 28 minute three set marathon match and entered the fourth round of the 2012 Wimbledon Ladies Singles tournament against Kazakhstan’s Yaroslava Shvedova
It took her three sets on Court 2, but she survived 6-1, 2-6, 7-5 to advance to the quarterfinals .
Once again Little Sis got off to a blazing start as she took only 26 minutes to complete the first set. But in Shvedova she was facing a tall player that can hit just as hard as she could and she sent that message in the second set that took 34 minutes to play and even the match.
Serena fought back in the closely contested deciding set that took 54 minutes to play and earned Little Sis a quarterfinal Centre Court matchup with defending Wimbledon champion and fourth seeded Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic.
Should be fun to watch at 9 AM CDT.
