Venus Williams has been enjoying her best
tournament of this year as she reaches the first semi final of the
season after beating Eugenie Bouchard of Canada in the last eight stage
of Toray Pan Pacific Open in Tokyo.
Williams, who beat world number two Victoria Azarenka in round 2, needed
three sets 6-3,6-7,6-3 to overcome the Canadian teenager to gain a semi
final spot for the first time in Tokyo. Williams will play either
Svetlana Kuznetsova or Petra Kvitova in semis.
