England, Jun30: American qualifier Brian Baker's career renaissance is headed for the fourth round at Wimbledon.





The 27-year-old Baker extended his remarkable comeback after a half-dozen years away from the tennis tour, beating Benoit Paire of France 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, 6-3 on Saturday.

The 126th-ranked Baker needed five operations from 2005-08, including reconstructive surgery on his right elbow, and returned to the sport about a year ago. He began 2012 ranked 458th, but Saturday's victory is expected to move him into the top 80.

Baker was an up-and-comer who reached the French Open junior final as a teenager in 2003. But a couple of months after playing in the 2005 U.S. Open, Baker needed left hip surgery. His 2008 elbow surgery required about three years for a full recovery.
