Venus and Serena back in Wimbledon quarterfinals

LONDON (AP) The Williams sisters are back in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, 16 years after they first made it this far together at the All England Club.

Six-time champion Serena and five-time winner Venus will be playing on Tuesday for spots in the semifinals.

Top-ranked Serena will face No. 21-seeded Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova on Centre Court in one of the day's four women's quarterfinals. Eighth-seeded Venus was paired against Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan on No. 1 Court.

Australian Open champion and No. 4-seeded Angelique Kerber was scheduled first on Centre Court against No. 5 Simona Halep, with No. 19 Dominika Cibulkova facing Elena Vesnina on No. 1 Court.

One men's fourth-round match still needed to be completed, with No. 10 Tomas Berdych and Jiri Vesely resuming at two sets apiece.
