Venus Into Quarterfinals In Bangalore
Bangalore: Venus Williams struggled with her serves, often failed to finish points at the net and was also distracted by a few late line calls. Yet, the reigning Wimbledon champion had the last laugh.

The second-seeded Venus defeated Shuai Peng of China 6-2, 6-7(6), 6-2 in a Canara Bank Bangalore Open second round match on Thursday.

In the second set, after trading breaks in the fourth and fifth games, Venus and Peng slugged all the way to the tie-breaker. Serving for the match at 6-4 in the tie-breaker, Venus served a double fault.

“I can serve a lot better than today but the good thing is that I have finished the match and it is behind me. I always want to close a match at two sets but it went to three,” Venus said.
