PARIS (AP) -- Top-ranked Serena Williams has advanced to the
quarterfinals of the French Open by beating Shahar Peer (Sha-har'
Pay'-er) 6-2, 6-2.
Williams complained of dizziness from a cold following a seesaw
three-set win in her previous match, but the only wobble Monday
against the No. 18-seeded Peer came at the start. Williams lost the
first seven points, then swept nine in a row.
From 2-all, Williams won five consecutive games to take charge
of the match.
Serena's sister Venus, eliminated Sunday, watched from the
stands. Peer fell to 0-10 against the Williams sisters, including
0-5 versus Serena.
Peer is 4-22 against top-five opponents.
Williams is bidding for her 13th Grand Slam championship. Her
lone French Open title came in 2002.
