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.

Z For example... Serena’s season in 2016. By her and Patrick’s standards it wasn’t very good. But did Serena split with him because she was going through a rough patch? No. Konta needs to learn that there won’t be a rich vein of tournament wins and matches all the time. Now if she was playing horrible from the start of 2017 til now, then that’s a different case.
