Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Seven-time Grand Slam-win­ner Venus Wil­liams yesterday said Gar­bine Mugu­ruza can “keep go­ing higher” af­ter she soared to fourth in the world rank­ings af­ter vic­tory at the China Open.

Wil­liams, 35, beat the 22-year-old Spa­niard when she re­tired from this month’s Wuhan Open ti­tle match, but she said the Wim­ble­don fi­nal­ist had the tal­ent to keep ris­ing.

“She re­ally has so much tal­ent, she can keep go­ing higher,” Wil­liams told re­porters ahead of her cam­paign at this week’s Hong Kong Open.
