Kvitova reaches Wimbledon quarterfinals

  •  

WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Defending champion Petra Kvitova overcame a slew of errors Monday to rally past Francesca Schiavone 4-6, 7-5, 6-1 and reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals.

In a match between two former Grand Slam tournament winners, both players struggled in the wind on Court 3. Kvitova wasted 10 break points in the first set. She finally broke back for 2-2 in the second when Schiavone double-faulted. The fourth-seeded Czech, however, took charge by jumping to a 5-0 lead in the third set and served out the match at love.

Schiavone, the 2010 French Open winner, won the first set despite hitting just two winners and making 16 unforced errors. Kvitova then won the second despite having four winners and 14 unforced errors.
