Venus Williams Knocks Out Of Miami Open

Collins Venus Miami Open

Collins Venus Miami Open

Collins, from St. Petersburg, got the biggest win of her pro career Wednesday night, shocking eighth-seeded Williams 6-2, 6-3 in the Miami Open quarterfinals.

Seven-time Grand Slam victor Williams went a break down in the first set as American Collins raced to a 3-0 lead, and saved two set points at 5-2 but lost the third after 39 minutes.

US Open champion Sloane Stephens turned on the style to qualify for the final of the Miami Open with an absolutely astonishing point typifying her performance.

And her opponent, Ostapenko, who is only 20 years old, is no longer considered an upstart after winning the 2017 French Open.

"The first time I saw Venus in the locker room I almost cried", Collins admitted. "She's been my favourite player for forever and this is just a special moment I'm trying to wrap my head around it".

'Iconic' Local Church Celebrates Good Friday With Christians All Over The World
The Apostle's Creed , recited in many churches, states that Jesus "was crucified, died and was buried; he descended into hell". Participants said they gathered to reflect on why Jesus died and connect with the community to continue his work.

Stephens and Azarenka had previously met in Indian Wells less than a fortnight before this encounter, with the American prevailing in straight sets in California, though it seemed after the first hour of this match that it would be the Belarusian, a three-time Miami Open champion, who would win this time.

"In the first set, I was down but came back and I battled really well", said Stephens, who is looking to improve to 6-0 in finals.

Collins will face Latvian Jelena Ostapenko in the semi-finals on March 29. "We used to come down here all the time and play when I was younger". She became a mother late that year - her son's name, Leo, is scrawled on the sneakers she wears in matches - and returned to play Mallorca and Wimbledon last year.

Svitolina said she was dealing with a mystery physical issue that turned mental.

Victoria Azarenko won the tournament in Miami three times in her career - in 2009, 2011, and 2016.

The out-of-nowhere French Open title last June was a hard act to follow in the intervening months.

"Before the match I knew that I have to be very aggressive, and when I had a chance, I was going for it", Ostapenko said.

Fourteenth seeded John Isner dominated with his serve in dismissing 19 seeded Hyeon Chung 6-1, 6-4 to make the elite eight in Miami.

"As I said, just take care of my serve and hit my shots and just be calm out there and be relaxed". "So I knew if I did that in the second I'd be right in there".
