Once again, Serena Williams is the last U.S. woman standing at a major. The eight-time Grand Slam champion briefly struggled late in the day against young Dutchwoman Michaella Krajicek, but powered through 6-3, 6-4 to enter the fourth round on Friday.

Serena’s older sister, Venus, was less fortunate, when fourth seed Jelena Jankovic knocked out the five-time Grand Slam winner 6-4, 4-6, 6-1 to race the fourth round. Australian Samantha Stosur was also sent packing by No. 6 seed Nicole Vaidisova 6-4, 6-4.
