WIMBLEDON, England (AP) — Jelena Ostapenko advanced to the fourth round at Wimbledon after winning 12 of the last 13 games against Irina-Camelia Begu.

The 2017 French Open champion from Latvia beat Begu 3-6, 6-1, 6-1 on No. 3 Court.

The 12th-seeded Ostapenko trailed 6-3, 1-0 when she turned things around. She won nine straight games to take a 3-0 lead in the deciding set before Begu was able to hold serve again.

Ostapenko then had to save a break point in the next game before taking a 4-1 lead.

Ostapenko reached the semifinals at the All England Club in 2018 and last week reached the final at the grass-court warmup tournament in Eastbourne, England.
