VWilliams wins at Wimbledon when Ivanovic retires

Venus Williams has advanced to the quarterfinals at Wimbledon after opponent Ana Ivanovic retired with an injury.
Williams led 6-1, 0-1 Monday when Ivanovic was forced to quit.
Ivanovic took a 10-minute break during the first game of the second set to have her left thigh taped by a trainer. She returned for two more points and took the game with a service winner. But she then started crying as she walked to her chair and told the umpire she was retiring.
Williams is seeking her sixth Wimbledon title and took a 5-0 lead before Ivanovic won her first game 27 minutes into the match. Former No. 1 Ivanovic hasn't reached a Grand Slam quarterfinal since winning the 2008 French Open.
