Venus saves three match points to beat Bertens in Miami

Twenty-one years after her Key Biscayne debut, wins at the Miami Open remain something to celebrate.

Three-time champion and No.8 seed Venus Williams of the United States survived a grueling battle in the third round of the Miami Open on Sunday, fending off three match points before ultimately prevailing over No.29 seed Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands at 5-7, 6-3, 7-5.

Williams blew a 5-0 lead in the first set and was down 5-3 in the third set. Williams, not far off 38, had looked the more sprightly. "It didn't look good sometimes, that's why you keep playing until the last point", Williams said. "I love it here".

"The first set was definitely all her, and she came up with some fantastic shots to break me at 5-5", three-time Miami Open champion Williams said.

Fifth seed Karolina Pliskova advanced as Zarina Diyas retired when 6-2 2-1 down and she will take on three-time champion Victoria Azarenka, who beat Agnieszka Radwanska 6-2 6-2, with Elina Svitolina also booking her spot in the quarter-finals with a 7-5 6-4 win over Ash Barty.
