Venus Williams Advances To WTA Semi-finals

Written By: SD Reporter


United States female tennis ace, Venus Williams defeated Spaniard GarbiñeMuguruza 7-5, 6-4, to book a place in Singapore’s WTA Finals last four for the fifth time in her career.

In her first appearance in the season-ending tournament since 2009, Venus ended Muguruza’s run in the event, reports Efe.

Caracas-born Spaniard Muguruza was in need of a win over Venus to secure a place in the last-four round for the second time in her career.

Committing 32 unforced errors, Muguruza could not repeat her win over the seven-time Grand Slam champion in the Wimbledon final earlier this year.

The 37-year-old Venus reached the semis in each of the four previous participation in the tournament, winning the title in 2008 and losing the 2009 final to her sister Serena Williams.

Venus joined Czech Karolina Pliskova, the White Group winner, in the semis.
