Venus Williams sees off Johanna Konta to reach Rome quarters


Friday, 19 May 2017 :  Venus Williams powered into the Italian Open quarter-finals with a dominant 6-1 3-6 6-1 victory over fifth seed Johanna Konta.

Williams, who had lost her last three encounters with the British number one, showed no signs of nerves as she dictated play from the baseline and broke Konta twice in the first set.

Konta recovered to take the second set and level the match but Williams, who won the Rome title in 1999, came back spectacularly with a decisive double break in the third set.

The American will meet either defending champion Garbine Muguruza, a 7-5 6-4 victor over Julia Goerges, in the quarter-finals.
