In Zurich, Switzerland, Venus Williams was pushed to two tiebreakers over two hours by 16-year-old qualifier Ana Ivanovic of Serbia-Montenegro before reaching the Swisscom Challenge quarterfinals. The seventh-seeded Williams edged Ivanovic, 7-6 (11), 7-6 (6), and will meet Wimbledon champion Maria Sharapova today.
