Ivanovic, Schiavone reach 4th round at Wimbledon

Recent French Open champions Ana Ivanovic and Francesca Schiavone reached the fourth round at Wimbledon with victories Saturday.

Ivanovic had a much tougher time.

The 14th-seeded Ivanovic, whose only Grand Slam title came in Paris in 2008, came back from a set down to beat 22nd-seeded Julia Goerges 3-6, 6-3, 6-4. Ivanovic needed to save break points in each of her last two service games.

Playing her usual varied and attacking style, the 24th-seeded Schiavone defeated 31st-ranked Klara Zakopalova 6-0, 6-4 in 68 minutes. Schiavone won the 2010 French Open, then was the runner-up last year.

The 32-year-old Schiavone reached the fourth round at Wimbledon for only the second time in 13 appearances.
