Serena Williams gave a premature victory leap in her fourth-round match and later allowed herself a self-deprecating celebration after beating Kaia Kanepi to reach the U.S. Open quarterfinals Monday.Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic became the first men's player into the quarterfinals, when the top-seeded Serb beat 22nd seed Philipp Kohlschreiber of Germany 6-1, 7-5, 6-4 .Making the quarters would seem like old hat to Williams, who has won 17 career grand slam singles crowns and is bidding to become the first woman to win three U.S. titles in a row since Chris Evert claimed four straight from 1975-1978 .Serena and sister Venus Williams have already reached the quarterfinals of the women's doubles tournament.
