LONDON -- Maria Sharapova won the last 11 games to reach the fourth round at Wimbledon with a 6-3, 6-0 victory over 44th-ranked Alison Riske of the United States.

Sharapova, the 2004 Wimbledon champion, got broken in the first game and fell behind 3-1 before overwhelming her opponent.

Saturday's match was played with the roof closed on Centre Court, while rain held up play on the outside courts.

Sharapova, who won the French Open earlier this month, lost in the second round at Wimbledon last year.
