Monfils, Venus And Tsonga Have A Winning Wednesday

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Frenchmen Gael Monfils and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga and American Venus Williams made it look easy today.

Venus, seeded third, beat Ukrainian Alona Bondarenko 6-3, 6-4 to reach the quarterfinals of the Zurich Open.

"I played OK and when the points became important I was winning those, especially on my serve. I was trying to put more into coming in (to the net) on different kinds of shots. I'll be looking to improve my level with every round," Venus said.

Up next is either Russian Maria Kirilenko or Italian Francesca Schiavone.

Monfils reached the last 16 of the Mutua Madrileña Madrid Masters by defeating Chilean Fernando González 6-3, 6-4. This is the second time in a week that the two have met, bringing a second straight-sets win for the Monfils.

In Madrid also, Tsonga, the 16th seed, edged through a third-set tiebreak to defeat Spaniard Marcel Granollers 3-6, 6-3, 7-6.
