Tennis: Williams sisters move into Los Angeles quarter-finals


LOS ANGELES : Top-seeded Serena Williams outclassed Arantxa Parra Santonja of Spain 6-3, 6-0, to roll into the quarter-finals of the 585,000-dollar WTA Tour event here, where she was joined by her sister, Venus.

"I felt comfortable out there and got into a groove," said Serena, who won the first nine games and cruised to victory in 53 minutes before a sparse crowd at the Home Depot Center.

In the featured evening match, second-seeded Venus Williams did her sister five minutes better, blasting past Elena Likhotseva, 6-1, 6-1. She improved to 9-0 all-time against the Russian.

"That was probably more in her mind, that she's probably thinking of all the matches," Venus said. "I didn't know the score."

No. 3 seed and three-time champion Lindsay Davenport made it a perfect 10 career victories over Amy Frazier as she smacked 10 aces in a 6-2, 6-4 victory.

A two-time champion here, Serena Williams is rounding into form after failing to capture her third straight Wimbledon crown earlier this month, when the former world No. 1 was stunned by Russian teenage sensation Maria Sharapova.

The Spaniard leveled the second set at 3-3 before Williams regained control and rolled to the victory.

"She changed up her game a little bit and I had to adjust to the change," Williams said. "Once I was able to adjust, I was able get back in the groove and play better again."

Although Davenport has been stretched to three sets just once by Frazier, the three-time champion of this event doesn't feel she owns the rivalry.

"It's funny when you said that because I remember I played her a couple times but I had no idea it was up to nine or 10 times," Davenport said. "It's a pretty good record against someone, but maybe 'own' is pretty strong word."

Still, Davenport respects the 14-year veteran, calling Frazier "old school."

"It's a compliment, though," Davenport laughed. "She's a classic. I don't know what to say. She's been around and when introducing us, they said her best result in a Grand Slam was in '92."

Elena Dementieva and Svetlana Kuznetsovsa also were victorious, setting up a quarter-final clash of Russians on Friday.

The fourth-seeded Dementieva outlasted 2002 champion Chanda Rubin of the United States, 7-5, 7-6 (10/8). Earlier, the fifth-seeded Kuznetsova outclassed No. 10 Anna Smashnova-Pistolesi of Israel 6-3, 6-0.

Also advancing to the quarters were No. 7 Nadia Petrova and No. 8 Vera Zvonareva. Petrova dismissed Croatia's Jelena Kostanic 6-3, 6-3 and will face Davenport. Zvonareva eliminated Marion Bartoli of France 6-2, 6-3, and will face Serena Williams.

No. 11 Francesca Schiavone of Italy engineered a minor upset with a 6-3, 0-6, 7-6 (7/3) win over No. 6 Ai Sugiyama of Japan.
