Williams battles into Toronto last 16, Muguruza through

Published by , Thursday 08/10/17 03:19

Venus Williams was forced to draw on all of her experience before overcoming Czech youngster Katerina Siniakova to reach the last 16 of the WTA Toronto hardcourt tournament on Wednesday. The 37-year-old American ninth seed prevailed 7-5, 7-5 in 1hr 39min. Williams, who will be chasing her third US Open crown next month, said she had remained calm against Siniakova even when errors prevented her from taking control. "She played so well, so competitive," Williams said afterwards. "I had a few errors but I think the key is to keep going for it and hopefully you'll get some in at some point." Williams will now face Elina Svitolina in the next round. Wimbledon champion Garbine Muguruza also advanced with a 7-5, 6-2 win over Belgium's Kirsten Flipkens.
