Before the game, many experts argued that the loss of Williams in the quarterfinals 2010 – when he played a poor game in particular – still fuel their competitive spirit, but the final margin of victory Pironkova (identical to the result of the year past – a 6-2, 6 – 3) did justice to her performance.

Again, Williams seemed a shadow of its former glory and can point to their own unforced errors – 19 to eight Pironkova – as the main reason he lost, but with a 3-1 record against Venus, it is clear that Bulgarian game is not that Williams is comfortable.

Williams was better but struggled to win points, while Pironkova was the opposite, and the Bulgarian was also significantly better to win her second serve points. Reception in the game, Venus was also far worse.

Fundamentally, Pironkova when he converted her chances, winning four of seven break points, while Williams could only convert one of the four.

With this victory, Pironkova joined an exclusive club of players to beat Williams three times in a Grand Slam (also won the 2006 first-round match of the Australia Open in between), a list that, according to WTA, Serena Williams only includes Kim Clijsters, Lindsay Davenport and Martina Hingis – who have a total of 460 weeks atop the WTA Tour ranking between them.

Venus joins sister Serena and top-seeded Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark, all eliminated in the fourth round on June 27, leaving the fourth seed Victoria Azarenka of Belarus and the fifth seed Maria Sharapova as the favorites to meet in women at the end of this year.

Pironkova, meanwhile, is just one victory of repeating the best result in her career – a semi-final at Wimbledon – and only need to beat eighth seed Petra Kvitova of the Czech Republic.

Kvitova and were losing finalists Pironkova at Wimbledon in 2010, but their careers have gone different ways since then. Kvitova used her success as a springboard to greater success, winning three titles this year, including the WTA Tour tournament in Madrid Premier mandatory.

Pironkova, still seeking her first WTA Tour title, had only four wins so far this year before Wimbledon, a figure matched by their performance in London. While Kvitova could be from a favorite, the grass at the All England Club seems to love as much as she loves Pironkova Wimbledon.
