Wimbledon continues today with the roll of Serena Williams. The No. 7 seed defeated No. 26 Russian Maria Kirilenko in straight sets today, 6-3, 6-2. She will face France's Marion Bartoli in the Round of 16, as she continues her effort to win a third consecutive Women's Singles Championship at All England Club.
It has been a very inspirational run for the younger Williams sister after a rough first half of 2011. She struggled to come back from a foot injury and then, to add insult to injury, suffered a pulmonary embolism in March. Here's hoping she continues her miracle run at Wimbledon and goes home the champion.
