Venus Williams dominated her fourth-round match against Maria Sharapova on Wednesday, advancing to the Wimbledon quarterfinals with a 6-1, 6-3 win over the 2004 champion.

Despite wasting seven break points in the third game of the second set, three-time champion Williams broke in the seventh and ninth games to advance at the All England Club.

Williams had 19 break points in the match, converting four of them. Sharapova failed to even earn a break point.

In the quarterfinals, Williams will face 2004 US Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.

Serena Williams, who overcame a calf strain to reach the quarterfinals, was scheduled to play top-ranked Justine Henin later Wednesday, while No 31 Michaella Krajicek was playing No 18 Marion Bartoli in another quarterfinal match.
