WIMBLEDON, England – Second-ranked Victoria Azarenka reached the fourth round of Wimbledon for the third time by beating Slovakian qualifier Jana Cepelova 6-3, 6-3 Saturday.
Azarenka reached the semifinals last year at the All England Club before losing to eventual champion Petra Kvitova. They are now two rounds away from a rematch in the semifinals.
Azarenka broke the 178th-ranked Cepelova five times while losing her serve twice. She is looking for her second Grand Slam title after winning this year's Australian Open as part of a 26-match winning streak.
Cepelova was playing in her first Grand Slam tournament.
