Pironkova ends Zvonareva’s Wimbledon hopes

Tvestana Pironkova defeats second seed Vera Zvonareva at Wimbledon.

Tvestana Pironkova is going forward to the fourth round of Wimbledon after beating second seed Vera Zvonareva.

The Bulgarian, seeded 32 in the tournament, took a little over an hour to win the match 6-2 6-3.

The pair clashed at the Wimbledon semi-finals last year, when Zvonareva triumphed in a three-set match.

This is the furthest that Pironkova has progressed in a Grand Slam competition so far this year, reaching the second rounds of both the Australian and French Open.

She is expected to face five-time champion Venus Williams in the next round.
