London, England - Five-time champion Serena Williams and one-time titlist Maria Sharapova were a pair of easy second-round winners Thursday at Wimbledon. The world No. 1 superstar Williams stomped helpless South African Chanelle Scheepers 6-1, 6-1 in a mere 49 minutes on the No. 1 Court at the venerable All England Club. The 17-time Grand Slam champion and reigning U.S. Open titlist is now 72-9 lifetime at Wimbledon, including seven trips into the final. The 32-year-olds third-round opponent on the famed grass Saturday will be 25th-seeded Frenchwoman Alize Cornet, who got past Czech Petra Cetkovska 6-4, 5-7, 6-3. The fifth-seeded former world No. 1 Sharapova has now won her last nine Grand Slam matches after blasting Swiss Timea Bacsinszky 6-2, 6-1 in an hour, also on the No. 1 Court. The Russian star is fresh off her French Open title three weeks ago. Sharapova stunned Williams in the 2004 Wimbledon final and was the 2011 runner-up here to Czech Petra Kvitova. Up next for the five-time major champion Sharapova will be upstart American Alison Riske. Ninth-seeded German left-hander Angelique Kerber reached the round of 32 by sneaking past Britains Heather Watson, 6-2, 5-7, 6-1. Meanwhile, 11th-seeded former world No. 1 Ana Ivanovic improved to 7-0 on grass this year with a 6-4, 6-0 pasting of Chinese Zheng Jie, 13th-seeded Canadian Eugenie Bouchard improved to 12-2 at Grand Slams this season with a 7-5, 6-1 victory over Spaniard Silvia Soler-Espinosa, and 19th-seeded 2013 Wimbledon runner-up Sabine Lisicki handled Czech Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 7-5. The former French Open champion Ivanovic captured her first-ever grass- court title in Birmingham two weeks ago; Bouchard is the only woman to appear in two major semifinals this year; and Lisicki was last years runner-up to Marion Bartoli at the AEC. Ivanovic and Lisicki will clash on Saturday. Kazakhstans Zarina Diyas ousted 15th-seeded Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro 7-6 (14-12), 5-7, 6-2, while 20th-seeded German Andrea Petkovic got past Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu 6-4, 3-6, 6-1, and 24th-seeded Belgian Kirsten Flipkens handled Spains Lourdes Dominguez Lino 6-2, 6-1. Flipkens was a surprise Wimbledon semifinalist last year. American Madison Keys posted a mild upset by tackling 31st-seeded Czech Klara Koukalova 7-5, 6-7 (3-7), 6-2. The 19-year-old Illinois native Keys is fresh off her first-ever WTA title, on grass, in Eastbourne last week. Also on Day 4, 2010 Wimbledon runner-up Vera Zvonareva, of Russia, dismissed rising Croat Donna Vekic 6-4, 6-4, Kazakhstans Yaroslava Shvedova doused Estonian two-time Wimbledon quarterfinalist Kaia Kanepi 6-3, 6-7 (4-7), 6-2, and the aforementioned Riske downed rising Italian Camila Giorgi 7-5, 6-2. Matches between third-seeded French Open runner-up Simona Halep, of Romania, and Ukrainian Lesia Tsurenko and American Victoria Duval and Swiss Belinda Bencic were postponed because of rain. The third round will commence Friday, as second seed Li Na, fourth seed Agnieszka Radwanska and a sixth-seeded Kvitova will take to the courts. The Australian Open champion Li will meet Czech Barbora Zahlavova Strycova, while the 2012 Wimbledon runner-up Radwanska will take on Portuguese Michelle Larcher de Brito and the 2011 titlist Kvitova will battle 30th-seeded five- time Wimbledon champ Venus Williams.

Yet there was little reason to celebrate Wednesday amid doubts about when or even if the remaining five venues will be ready in time for footballs showcase tournament in June. The Arena das Dunas in the northeastern city of Natal was inaugurated in a ceremony attended by FIFA Secretary General Jerome Valcke and Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who took a symbolic first kick in front of a few thousand people. The event came a day after organizers admitted there is a serious risk the southern city of Curitiba might be dropped from the tournament because of lagging stadium construction. Brazils World Cup organizing committee admitted FIFA might have to consider reshuffling the tournaments matches, which would be an embarrassment for the country and disastrous for footballs governing body as more than 1 million game tickets have already been sold. "We know we had several warnings but it seems that these warnings were not taken seriously," Jose Maria Marin, the committees president, told reporters. "Its a difficult situation." Brazil promised to deliver all 12 World Cup stadiums by the end of 2013, but five are still under construction and at least two of those will not be ready until about two months before the tournaments June 12 start. One of those two is the Itaquerao stadium in Sao Paulo, which is supposed to host the World Cups opening match. In Natal, work was being done until the last minute before the inauguration of the Arena das Dunas, a 42,000-capacity stadium hosting four matches in the World Cups opening round — Mexico vs. Cameroon, Ghana vs. United States, Japan vs. Greece and Italy vs. Uruguay. The pace of stadium construction is likely to be on the agenda when Rousseff meets with FIFA President Sepp Blatter in Zurich on Thursday. The delay in building the Arena da Baixada in Curitiba is the biggest problem so far. FIFA and local organizers will make another evaluation there Feb. 18, but even if Curitiba is kept as a host city, the stadium isnt likely to be ready until a few weeks before the World Cup. "t;We cant believe in the worst.dddddddddddd. On the contrary, I believe that the governor, the mayor and the entrepreneurs responsible for the stadium in Curitiba will have it ready in time," Rousseff said. "I have to bet in favour of that, not against." The Itaquerao stadium in Sao Paulo is where two workers were killed late last year when a crane collapsed while hoisting a huge roofing structure. It isnt expected to be done until mid-April. Officials say the three other unfinished stadiums will be ready before then, but the timing remains unclear. Organizers were hoping to have the first match at the renovated Beira-Rio stadium in the southern city of Porto Alegre on Jan. 29, but civil defence officials monitoring construction said Wednesday there might not be enough time to get everything ready by then. The Arena Pantanal in the wetlands city of Cuiaba was listed as 90 per cent complete going into January. The Arena da Amazonia in the jungle city of Manaus, where a worker fell to his death from about 115 feet (35 metres) up in December, was about 95 per cent ready. There also have been problems at some of the stadiums already completed. The roof leaks at the stadium in the capital of Brasilia, and there are concerns about the condition of its playing field. On Wednesday, FIFA inspectors recommended officials reduce the number of matches scheduled there before the World Cup to preserve the grass. Also Wednesday, Brazilian authorities announced that the 12 host cities will have integrated command centres to provide security during the monthlong tournament. The estimated $14 billion that Brazil is spending to put on the World Cup has been one of the targets of anti-government protests that erupted last year, and several times demonstrators clashed with police trying to reach stadium sites. On Wednesday, during the inauguration ceremony for the Arena das Dunas, nearly 300 demonstrators gathered outside the stadium to protest the tournaments cost, local media reported. Globo TV said some protesters vandalized a car. Associated Press writer Marco Sibaja in Brasilia contributed to this report.
