Maria Kirilenko, The four-time champion Serena Williams breezed past 16 Wimbledon with a 6-3 6-2 victory over Maria Kirilenko. After being taken to three sets in the field two in the previous round, Williams seemed more at home with a great performance on court one.
A break in the opening game Kirilenko was enough to take the opening set before the 27th seed delivered again in the third and fifth games of the second. The U.S. will play ninth seed Marion Bartoli and Eastbourne champion in the fourth round.
“I have to keep improving,” he told BBC Sport. “It’s just get the rhythm I’ve been losing a little and getting better. “I just want to serve better, as I did today and just hold on there, go ahead and enjoy myself.”
The defending champion had been unhappy playing her second round match against Simona Halep away from two major stages of Wimbledon and she responded to her return with a muscular performance.
Williams broke Kirilenko far from serving, the positioning of the Russian Federation under the pressure as soon as he lost her first attempt.
After advancing from the beginning, Williams survived a decision to be reviewed as Kirilenko fired millimeters wide at a chance to break again in the fifth. Williams rarely looked in danger serves again though, while Kirlenko creaked under a rain of blows groundstrokes.
The Kirilenko 24 years old, won over most people with their tenacious Retrival two match points at 5-1, but would be all I had to show at the end of the war.
