2017 Italian Open - Venus Williams Defeats Johanna Konta to Enter QF's Thursday May 18,2017
Venus Williams powered into the Italian Open quarterfinals on Thursday May 18,2017 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 or Germany's Julia Georges in the QF's
