The 21-year-old Svientek won her 37th consecutive victory over Dutch Leslie Yadenama Kerkov, the world number 138 and qualifier, to improve on the record for the number of consecutive victories in a season, which she beat on Tuesday. Williams, who had won 35 straight in 2000, ended her partnership with Venus in the first round when Jana Fet.
