Tennis: Serena Sails Into Last Eight As Teen Topples Radwanska

Tennis: Serena sails into last eight as teen topples Radwanska

NEW YORK, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -6th Sept,2016) - Serena Williams broke through another barrier on Monday, her 308th Grand Slam match win taking her past Roger Federer for the most in major tournaments and into the quarter-finals of the US Open.

"Wow, it's really exciting," Williams said of moving out of a tie with Swiss great Federer for most Grand Slam match wins. "This is where it all started so it's always so magical out here for me -- 308 sounds pretty good." As Williams, never seriously challenged in a 6-2, 6-3 victory over 52nd-ranked Yaroslava Shvedova, sailed on, one of the two players with a chance to topple her from the world number one spot in this tournament bowed out as fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska was shocked by 18-year-old Croatian Ana Konjuh.

The 6-4, 6-4 triumph avenged a bitter disappointment for Konjuh, who held three match points against Radwanska in the second round at Wimbledon before falling 9-7 in the third round after stepping on a ball and turning her ankle.
