Ace tennis player Venus Williams enters the quarter finals after defeating Alice Cornet of France in the third round of French Open tennis tournament held at Roland Garros Stadium in Paris on May 28. Williams can make it to the eighth round of the Grand Slam tournament if she wins the fourth round against Switzerland’s Timea Bacsinzky. Commenting on her win, she said that Pais is her favorite destination and winning the match was an excuse to stay a little longer. Each round will get better and said she is not going to take it lightly.
Venus Williams played her first match in 1997 at the French Open where she was part of a team. 20 years later she has the reputation of being the oldest women player. She will be 36 soon. She had seven single titles to her credit, and five of this was won at the Wimbledon, she won two at the US open, but she was not making it big at the Roland Garros recently. She was not part of the 2011 tournament, and she was unable to move past the first or second plays since 2012 to 2015. For Williams, this is the 44th match and for Bacsinszky it 26.
Williams won both matches, and they played opposite each other before, but it was a long time ago at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and 2015 US open. Last year Bacsinszky reached the semifinals but lost to the Serena Williams. While speaking of her opponent, Williams said that it was a long time she played Bacsinszky and hopes she plays better now as she is seeded No 9. She finished saying she is better too. Meanwhile, on Monday, three US women will be playing including Williams sisters and Madison Keys. Even a single win would mean they will join Shelby Roger giving multiple quarterfinalists since 2004.
