Sloane Stephens of US comes back to beat Cetkovska, reach Wimbledon's 4th round for 1st time

Sloane Stephens of the U.S. reached Wimbledon's fourth round for the first time, coming back to close out an uneven 7-6 (3), 0-6, 6-4 victory over 196th-ranked qualifier Petra Cetkovska of the Czech Republic on Saturday in a match suspended the night before because of darkness.

They resumed at the start of the third set, and the 17th-seeded Stephens came out slowly, falling behind 2-0.

But Cetkovska double-faulted three times while letting Stephens take a 4-3 edge. Stephens then held for 5-3, saving a break point with an ace, and later capped the match with a cross-court forehand winner.

Stephens is in the round of 32 for a third consecutive Grand Slam tournament. At the Australian Open in January, she defeated Serena Williams en route to the semifinals.
