Konta sweeps past Venus to reach Italian Open quarter-finals

Konta sweeps past Venus to reach Italian Open quarter-finals

Britain's Johanna Konta brushed aside former champion Venus Williams to reach the quarter-finals of the Italian Open on Thursday.

Konta had earlier beat another American Sloane Stephens 6-7 (3/7), 6-4, 6-1 as competitors play two games to make up for Wednesday's rain washout.

Williams, the 1999 Rome winner, was handed a third round ticket after sister Serena pulled out with a knee injury before they were due to meet.

@bastion To be honest with you, I want to see a Djokovic/Nadal final. But, again, if he wins this year's French Open title, I fear for his rivals going forward this year. In 2015,he was so consistent, it was scary - winning 11 titles out of 14 finals. That's insane.

I'm a bit worried about the drive being less because she needs to grind out some matches to succeed at a grand slam but I wouldn't say her draw is that difficult.
