WIMBLEDON, England — Sara Errani needed just seven seconds Wednesday to complete a rain-interrupted win at Wimbledon, and she didn’t even have to hit a ball.

Errani led American CoCo Vandeweghe 6-1, 5-3 and held the advantage one point from victory when their match was halted Tuesday evening. They returned to Court 16 some 18 hours later, and when Vandeweghe double-faulted into the net on the first point, Errani had the victory.

Both players smiled as they met at the net to shake hands.

Errani was runner-up to Maria Sharapova this month at the French Open.
