MOSCOW, July 4 (RIA Novosti) - Russian pair Maria Kirilenko and Igor Andreev won their mixed double match at Wimbledon to book a place in the semifinals and a chance to take on the number one seeds.

The two Russians beat third seeds Pavel Vizner and Kveta Peschke from the Czech Republic in straight sets 6-3, 6-4 on Thursday in a one-sided match that the Russians never really looked like losing.

They will hope to enjoy more success than their compatriot, Elena Dementieva who lost her semifinal match against Venus Williams Thursday, when they meet the top-seeds, American Mike Bryan and Katarina Srebotnik from Slovenia.
