Peters Township native Alison Riske earned a debut appearance in Wimbledon’s fourth round with a 4-6, 6-4, 6-4 victory over No. 13 seed Belinda Bencic of Switzerland.

The 55th-ranked Riske has won each of her matches in three sets this week.

Riske, who won PIAA and WPIAL singles titles in her lone year playing at Peters Township (2006), never had been past the third round in eight previous appearances at the All England Club, including a second-round loss to Bencic a year ago.

Riske will face No. 1 Ash Barty, who has won 15 consecutive matches, with a quarterfinal berth at stake.
