    Paris, France (Sports Network) - Serena Williams domination of womens tennis continued Sunday with a straight-set win over Italys Roberta Vinci in the fourth round of the French Open. Swell Nederland . The top-seeded Williams rolled to a 6-1, 6-3 triumph and extended her career- best winning streak to 28 straight matches. She hasnt lost since falling to Victoria Azarenka in the Doha final back in February and entered the second Grand Slam of the year off titles in Miami, Charleston, Madrid and Rome. Sundays victory gave Williams a 20-0 mark on clay this year. She also improved to 71-3 overall since a stunning first-round loss to Virginie Razzano in last years French Open, and has dropped just 10 games through the first four rounds of this years stay at Roland Garros. The 15th-seeded Vinci has given Williams the most trouble thus far by taking four games. However, it really wasnt much of a contest. Williams won the first four games and captured the opening set in 29 minutes. The second set was closer, but Williams won the final 10 points of the match. Next up for the 15-time Grand Slam champ is Russian veteran Svetlana Kuznetsova, a 6-4, 4-6, 6-3 upset winner over eighth-seeded German Angelique Kerber. Kuznetsova won the 2009 French Open, beating Williams in the quarterfinals along the way, and was the runner-up in 2006. She has reached her second Grand Slam quarterfinal in as many tries this year after a trip to the final eight at the Australian Open in January, but hasnt won a tournament of any kind since 2010 in San Diego. Williams, the 2002 French champ, owns a 6-2 lifetime mark against Kuznetsova, but the two havent met since 2009 at the Tour Championships in Qatar. "It will be a good match," said Williams. "Last time we played here she won so that will probably get her pumped up and shes on a comeback. She has nothing to lose but everything to gain. Ive had some pretty tough matches on clay this year and for sure this will be another." Fifth-seeded Sara Errani also advanced to the quarterfinals with a 5-7, 6-4, 6-3 win over Spains Carla Suarez Navarro. Errani, the 2012 runner-up, will next meet fourth-seeded Agnieszka Radwanska, a 6-2, 6-4 winner over 2008 French champ Ana Ivanovic. Fourth-round play will continue on Monday. Defending champion and second seed Maria Sharapova will face American Sloane Stephens, while third-seeded Victoria Azarenka will take on 2010 French champ Francesca Schiavone. Also, Serbias Jelena Jankovic will square off against American Jamie Hampton and Russian 12th seed Maria Kirilenko will meet yet another American in Bethanie Mattek-Sands. Swell Bottle Sale . Isner, ranked No. 14, won his eighth career singles title and took the title in New Zealand for the second time after his victory in 2010.

Burke is expected to miss two to three months after breaking a finger in the teams third preseason game.

Lucky Liberty has returned from 18 months off the scene to win two of his four races this campaign with the chance to add another on Pakenham Cup day.But while getting the injury-plagued gelding back in winnng form is satisfying, trainer Henry Dwyer admits theres also a feeling of what might have been with a horse he believes has the natural talent of a Group One performer.It is satisfying to get him back winning but its a bit of a bittersweet feeling knowing hes probably not going to measure up to the level he should, Dwyer said.But we just try to get him there as sound as we can on race day and hell win races based on that, regardless of how fit he is.Lucky Liberty won his first three starts as a three-year-old before he was unplaced in the C S Hayes Stakes at Flemington.He finished second last in the 2015 Australian Guineas after which he was found to have a bone chip in a knee which required surgery.When he was close to making a return he suffered a stress fracture to a shoulder and needed another long lay-off. Swell Bottle Nederland. After a fourth placing on his return at Sale in September, Lucky Liberty won back-to-back benchmark races at Caulfield and Sale in October before a third in a 1400m open handicap at Flemington.Saturdays $100,000 VOBIS Gold Bullion (1400m) at Pakenham is planned as the final run of his campaign.Since his Flemington run on November 5, Lucky Liberty has been kept up to the mark with time on a water walker at the Rockmount pre-training facility, north east of Melbourne.He had a fortnight up there and arrived back at Caulfield early this week in really good order and he should be able to run up to what hes been doing on Saturday, Dwyer said.Dwyer doesnt want to race Lucky Liberty over summer and is looking to a late autumn, early winter campaign in Brisbane aimed at the Stradbroke Handicap if he shows he is in form. Wholeslae Jerseys NFL Jerseys Cheap Wholesale NBA Jerseys Cheap NHL Jerseys Cheap MLB Jerseys Wholesale Soccer Jerseys Cheap College Jerseys Cheap Football Jerseys Cheap Basketball Jerseys Cheap Baseball Jerseys ' ' '
