N EW YORK (REUTERS) - Fifth seed Elina Svitolina knocked Venus Williams out of the US Open to reach the third round on Wednesday (Aug 28), winning 6-4, 6-4 despite a heroic defensive effort from the 39-year-old former champion.

Trailing 5-3 in the second set, seven-times Grand Slam champion Williams saved five-match points to hold serve in a dramatic 22-point game.

The 24-year-old Ukrainian, who has reached the fourth round of the US Open for the past two years, struggled to convert break points throughout the match, winning just four out of 17.
