Venus knocks out Serena, Wozniacki marches on

"I'm just lucky that I've played more matches than her right now", Venus said on court afterward. "But, you know, at least I tried, and I tried to do what I thought I needed to do out there today".

"So I have just got to keep saying at each tournament that my goal is just to be better than the last".

Rising Russian Daria Kasatina added to the misery for luckless USA open victor Sloane Stephens, handing the slumping American her tenth loss in 13 matches since winning the grand slam title in September, 6-4 6-3.

Her lateral movement was surprisingly good. In her postmatch media conference, she said she started listening to Smokey Robinson & The Miracles a couple days ago, discussed the meaning behind the name of her clothing line - "Life is about not having any confinements. I think it's such a treat for everyone to see this match so early in her comeback", Venus said. I definitely don't want to go backwards.
