WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Venus Williams has advanced to the
quarterfinals at Wimbledon when opponent Ana Ivanovic retired one
game into the second set.
Williams led 6-1, 0-1 Monday when Ivanovic called it quits. Ivanovic took a 10-minute break during the first game of the second set to have her left thigh taped by a trainer. She returned for two more points, but after hitting a service winner to take the game, she began crying as she walked to her chair and told the umpire she was retiring.
Williams, seeking her sixth Wimbledon title, took a 5-0 lead before Ivanovic won a game 27 minutes into the match. Former No. 1 Ivanovic hasn't reached a Grand Slam quarterfinal since winning the 2008 French Open.
