WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Serena Williams — players with a combined 12 Wimbledon titles — all won in straight sets Saturday to move into the fourth round and keep up their pursuit of even more championship trophies at the All England Club.
Six-time champion Federer beat David Nalbandian 6-4, 6-2, 6-4 to move closer to equaling the record of seven Wimbledon singles titles held by Pete Sampras and 1880s player Willie Renshaw. Two-time winner and defending champion Rafael Nadal committed only three unforced errors in a 7-6 (6), 7-6 (5), 6-0 victory over Gilles Muller, a 92nd-ranked wild card from Luxembourg.
Williams, chasing a third straight title and fifth overall in her comeback from nearly a year out with serious health problems, served 10 aces in beating 26th-seeded Maria Kirilenko 6-3, 6-2.
Another former champion, 2004 winner Maria Sharapova, also reached the round of 16, downing Klara Zakopalova of the Czech Republic 6-2, 6-3.
Other winners included top-ranked woman Caroline Wozniacki, former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro and last year’s runner-up Tomas Berdych.
