American Venus Williams won her second straight three-set match on Thursday to reach the semifinals of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel. Venus defeated Agnes Szavay 6-2, 5-7, 6-1.

In the semifinal round Venus will play Barbora Zahlavova Strycova of the Czech Republic.

The very animated Frenchman Gael Monfils showed that he can get up!

Also reaching the semifinals of the Abierto Mexicano Telcel, Monfils was ahead in his match against Argentine Leonardo Mayer 6-3, 6-7 (3), 4-1, when Mayer retired due to cramps.

Monfils is scheduled to play another Argentine, Jose Acasuso, in the semifinals.
