AO Update: Venus Williams Continues To Win

Saturday, January 19, 2008

India's Sania Mirza definitely had a plan in mind when she and American Venus Williams finally hit the court, but it was really irrelevant. Mirza was defeated 7-6 (7/0), 6-4.

Roger Federer's five-set, 4½-hour match against Janko Tipsarevic played havoc with the night schedule Saturday at the Australian Open.

That delayed the match between Venus and Mirza by two hours at Rod Laver Arena, and the pair opted not to move to another court to accommodate the next match featuring Australian Lleyton Hewitt and Marcos Baghdatis. The Hewitt-Baghdatis showdown didn't start until 11:47 p.m.

"The tournament did ask if Sania and I would consider playing at Vodafone or playing tomorrow," Williams said. "Both of us didn't want to. We felt like our match was important. We also felt like we wanted the schedule to go as planned."

Venus continues to power through her matches even though she's making a lot of errors. But like her opponents game plans, the errors are irrelevant too, and when you wrap it all up, the win is all that really counts. Go Venus!!

Venus' fourth round opponent has not yet been decided. She will play the winner of the match between Na Li of China and Marta Domachowska of Poland.
