With a little luck at the end, defending champion Maria Sharapova returned to the Wimbledon semifinals by beating fellow Russian Nadia Petrova 7-6 (6), 6-3 Tuesday. In the final game, Sharapova clipped the net on consecutive points -- and won both. The first allowed her to save the only break point she faced.
