Three: Venus’ magic number at French Open

May 29, 2009

Venus Williams is the world’s No. 3 singles player in women’s tennis. Today, in her third round match at the French Open with Agnes Szavay (Who?) Williams lost in straight sets (6-0, 6-4). The shutout was her first in a Grand Slam event in more than three years. It also was the third time in as many years that Williams was eliminated in the third round of the French Open.
Unfortunately for Williams, she always seems to struggle on the clay court at Roland Garros. It remains the only Grand Slam title she has not won. She reached one French Open final in 2002, a year in which she lost three of four Grand Slam titles to her sister Serena.
Fortunately for the elder Williams, she can now focus more closely on defending her title on the grass courts at Wimbledon, where she has won three of the last four championships, including the last two.
