Serena aces her quarterfinal

Sisterly advice leads Williams past Wimbledon’s defending champion
Serena Williams hit 13 aces at up to 120 mph and overpowered defending champion Petra Kvitova 6-3, 7-5 in the Wimbledon quarterfinals Tuesday at the All England Club.
“You can’t play a defending Wimbledon champion or Grand Slam champion and not elevate your game,” said Serena Williams, who produced 27 winners and only 10 unforced errors. “I had to weed out the riffraff and just get serious.”
