Last night, Venus Williams won the Mexican Open defeating the number sixtieth ranked Polona Hercog of Slovenia 2-6 6-2 -6-3.
However, clay is Venus worst surface, and she struggled she was pushed to three sets this week against low ranked opponents. Venus is too talented to have to fight show so hard against these lightweights. Maybe Venus is getting old? Venus turns thirty in June and maybe her time is running out to win an eighth grand slam title?
For instance, Venus almost lost her quarterfinal match to Laura Pois Tio, she is the number 399 ranked player in the world. Venus was down 1-5 in the final set before pulling out a 7-5 victory in the third set.
The Mexican Open is a tier three event, but Venus earned her 43rd WTA Tour title.
