WIMBLEDON, England (AP) - Top-ranked Dinara Safina of Russia has
become the first player to win a match under Wimbledon's new roof,
rallying to beat Amelie Mauresmo of France 4-6, 6-3, 6-4 for a spot
in the quarterfinals.

The match was interrupted with Safina leading 4-1 in the second set for the first rain delay of the tournament. The roof was closed before play resumed about 30 minutes later.

Safina trailed 3-0 in the final set but broke back twice for a 5-4 lead and then served out the match. She will next play Sabine Lisicki of Germany.
