From there, Robson took complete control, building a 4-0 lead in the third set.

After Wimbledon's traditional day of rest on the middle Sunday, Robson moves on to Week 2 at Wimbledon.

On Monday, she will face 46th-ranked Kaia Kanepi of Estonia, a four-time major quarterfinalist who beat 126th-ranked wild-card entry Alison Riske of the United States 6-2, 6-3.

"It's now my second time in the second week of a Slam, so that's pretty cool. Except at the U.S. Open, I played on the Sunday, so it didn't quite feel like a 'second week,'" Robson said, "and my brother said it didn't count."

Well, as far as all of a certain country is concerned, this one most certainly will count. And if Robson wins again, she will be the first British woman since Jo Durie in 1984 to reach the quarterfinals at Wimbledon — or any Grand Slam tournament.
