MOSCOW, June 1 (RIA Novosti) - Svetlana Kuznetsova became the third Russian to reach the quarterfinals of the French Open on Monday, defeating Poland's Agnieszka Radwanska 6-4, 1-6, 6-1.
The seventh-seed Russian will now play Serena Willams of the United States (seeded 2), who defeated Canada's Aleksandra Wozniak 6-1, 6-2.
Speaking at a news conference after the match, Williams said she looked forward to the game with Kuznetsova.
