Serena Williams fended off a second-set comeback to defeat wild card Yaroslava Shvedova of Kazakhstan in the fourth round at Wimbledon on Monday.

After breezing through the first set, sixth seed Williams took her foot off the gas in the second to allow the French Open quarterfinalist back into the match. But Williams closed out the decider to register a 6-1, 2-6, 7-5 win.

The world No. 65 Shvedova bows out having clinched only the second so-called golden set in the history of tennis by winning all 24 points against in one set against Sara Errani in the third round.

Williams will face either 24th seed Francesca Schiavone of Italy or the reigning champion Petra Kvitova in the quarterfinal.
