Maria Sharapova wasn't at her very best on Friday, but she was still able to pull out a straight set victory (6-4, 6-3) over No. 29 Irina Camelia-Begu. Sharapova moves on to the fourth round for the ninth time in here Wimbledon career, where she will face the Zarina Diyas.

Sharapova looked a bit off at times, hitting 15 unforced errors and six double faults to just 11 winners and two aces against Camelia-Begu. Even still, it was enough to get the win without too much stress. Sharapova will have two days off before playing Monday in the fourth round, where she will look to make her first quarterfinals appearance since 2011 (when she was runner-up).
