Williams’ third-round match against Daria Kasatkina held for rain

Venus Williams was ONE – say it with me – ONE point away from moving onto the fourth round at this year’s Wimbledon tournament. What could possibly get in the way of Williams getting match point against Russian Daria Kasatkina?

A torrential downpour. With nothing but blue skies and not a single cloud in sight.

During the break, she kept limber and loose by stretching in the hallway.

Williams won the first set, 7-5, dropped the second, 4-6, and when the game resumed, took the third set, 10-8, against the 19-year-old.
