Wimbledon Scores And Results: Serena Williams Makes It To Semifinals

It was a mixed bag for American competitors on Tuesday at the 2012 Championships at Wimbledon. While the grass courts will finally say farewell to the last two remaining American men's players, one well-known American women's player will soldier on into the semifinals.

Serena Williams was able to knock off last year's champion, Petra Kvitova. Williams looked dominant and on top of her game while dispatching Kvitova in straight sets, 6-3, 7-5. Just one more match stands between her and the finals.

Meanwhile, on the men's side, five singles players advanced to the quarterfinals, but Americans Brian Baker and Mardy Fish will not be among them. Fish was bested by Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, 4-6, 7-6 (7-4), 6-4, 6-4, while Baker was upended in straight sets by Philipp Kohlschreiber, 6-1, 7-6, 6-3.

No. 4 seed Andy Murray was the biggest men's name to advance on Tuesday, eliminating Marin Cilic in three sets, 7-5, 6-2, 6-3.
