Serena sinks Peer

Top-ranked Serena Williams advanced smoothly to the quarterfinals of the French Open by beating Shahar Peer 6-2, 6-2.

Williams complained of dizziness from a cold following a seesaw three-set win in her previous match, but the only wobble against the No. 18-seeded Peer came at the start.

Williams lost the first seven points, then swept nine in a row.

From 2-all, Williams won five consecutive games to take charge of the match.

Afterward, she was interviewed courtside by former French player Cedric Pioline.

“I love Paris,” she told the crowd in French. “My game is better. I hope I’m going to win.”
