    Russia's Vera Zvonareva made it into her second Grand Slam semi-final after beating U.S. Open champion Kim Clijsters, ranked 8, at Wimbledon on Tuesday.

    Zvonareva, ranked 21, won 3:6, 6:4, 6:2 - a win that astounded the Russian herself as the "day of surprises" continues at Wimbledon.

    Zvonareva will next face Tsvetana Pironkova after the Bulgarian dumped five-time champion Venus Williams out of the tournament.

    The 25-year-old from Moscow is the only Russian survivor at Wimbledon singles after Maria Sharapova went out to U.S.'s Serena Williams in the fourth round.
