Mary Pierce reached the Wimbledon quarterfinals for the first time in nine years Monday by beating Flavia Pennetta 6-3, 6-1. The No. 12-seeded Pierce, runner-up to Justine Henin-Hardenne at the French Open, lost only 10 points on serve and never faced a break point. Pennetta, playing in the fourth round at a major event for the first time, had just 11 winners and 33 unforced errors.
