Serena Williams b. Petra Kvitova 63 75
When matches count, here re-emerge Serena Williams’ style and strength.
The U.S. has qualified for the semifinals of Wimbledon throwing out the queen of last year Petra Kvitova in two sets, 63 75.
As often happens, Serena was able to raise the level of play against a player as dangerous as the left-handed czech. The service of Williams was lethal, and then remains the real thermometer of his game: 13 ace and double faults 0.
When this fundamental work, it’s hard to beat her. The Kvitova did not disfigured, but her form was far from that of 12 months ago. Too slow and foul, often stopped on the acceleration of Serena.
Now for the Californian girl will be one within the Azarenka and Paszek.
Kerber b. Lisicki 6/3 6/7 7/5
Beautiful and exciting challenge between the two German players, authors of a real battle.
Angelique was ahead of a set and a break, before being caught up with her from the rival and then forced to the tiebreaker, won in comeback precisely by Sabine, she imposed herself for 9 to 7 after having been under 3-5.
In the third and final tranche this Kerber is first passed along in the score and then she found a passage from the knock-out on 3/5.
From the ninth games great reaction to her and four games won consecutively.
