Radwanska advances to Wimbledon semifinals
WIMBLEDON, England—Third-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska reached her first Grand Slam semifinal, outlasting Maria Kirilenko 7-5, 4-6, 7-5 at Wimbledon on Tuesday. The match was disrupted by rain and moved to the roof-covered Centre Court for the last four games.
Radwanska completed the women's semifinal lineup and will next play Angelique Kerber.
Her match was switched to a different court following a delay of about 90 minutes at 4-4 in the third set. The match was the fifth of the day to wrap up on Centre Court, with the other three women's quarterfinals played there in their entirety.
The 17th-seeded Kirilenko was trying to reach her first Wimbledon semifinal. She was supported in her guest box by two-time NHL MVP Alex Ovechkin of the Washington Capitals.
