Venus ends Konta’s run in China

Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Venus Wil­liams earned the chance to avenge her sis­ter Ser­ena’s seis­mic de­feat at the US Open when she sub­dued bat­tling Bri­ton Jo­hanna Konta to reach the Wuhan Open semi­fi­nals yesterday. The seven-time Grand Slam-win­ner sur­vived a three-set ex­am­i­na­tion by qual­i­fier Konta to set up a meet­ing with Roberta Vinci, Ser­ena Wil­liams’ shock con­queror in New York. The Amer­i­can vet­eran looked rat­tled as she slipped to 3-1 down in the third set against Konta, the Bri­tish num­berone-in-wait­ing, but she re­cov­ered to take it 6-4, 6-3, 7-5.
