Serena shines under centre court roof at Wimbledon!

World number one Serena Williams has come through her biggest test of the tournament so far. Serena is looking for that 7th Wimbledon title which would take her to 22nd Grand Slam titles and she had to perform well against Kuznetsova who has beaten the world number one this year and after a shaky first set from Serena.

Serena could not have asked for a much better start as she raced to a 3-1 lead in the opening set to put aside some early nerves however the Russian wasn’t going to give up there and managed to find her feet in the match and broke the world number one to lead 5-4 but serving out the first set didn’t go to plan as she was broken and who would have thought at this stage that would be the last game Kuznetsova won?

When they returned after the rain delay with the roof shut it was all about one player, the world number one who turned on the style to shine on centre court to reel off nine games in a row to book her place in the Wimbledon quarter finals for a 12th time during her career winning her 83rd match at SW19.
