U.S. Open: Venus Williams tops Julia Goerges in 2nd round
Venus Williams breezed through her second-round match at the U.S. Open.
The seven-time major champ had spent 2 hours, 42 minutes on court in a tense three-set victory over 93rd-ranked Kateryna Kozlova on Tuesday. But against German veteran Julia Goerges on Thursday, Williams won 6-2, 6-3 in 78 minutes.
She had just 17 unforced errors — in complete contrast to the whopping 63 in her first-round win.
The oldest player in the draw at age 36, the sixth-seeded Williams is coming off a semifinal appearance at Wimbledon, her deepest run at a major since 2010.
