Wimbledon: Fourth-seeded Victoria Azarenka became the first player to reach the Wimbledon quarterfinals, beating Nadia Petrova 6-2, 6-2 on Monday.

The Belarusian equaled her previous best performance at the All England Club, where she made it to the quarters in 2009 before losing to Serena Wlliams.

Azarenka will next face Tamira Paszek of Austria or Ksenia Pervak of Russia.
