  • American Venus Williams climbed back into the Top Ten rankings of tennis players for the first time in four years by winning her third tournament of the year, beating the Czech Republic’s Karolina Pliskova in the finals of the Huajin Securities WTA Elite Trophy Zhuhai. This is Venus’ second championship in China. The tennis superstar also won in Wuhan, Chna last month. “Seven weeks here in Asia and now I feel like it’s my home,” Williams said. 

     
    Although Venus was the top-seeded entrant headed into the Zhuhai tournament, she had her hands full with Pliskova. Williams raced out to a 4-1 lead in the opening set before Pliskova won the next three games to even the score. Pliskova led 4-2 in the second set and by the same score in the tiebreak before Williams mounted a comeback in order to capture the title. “It’s a great thing to be Top 10 now with the level of the game, but I’m still very hungry. I’m ready for more,” Williams said. “I’ve had so many experiences in tennis that I still expect a lot from myself. So I’m very happy to be moving forward, but I also want to continue and not stop here.”
