Venus Williams came back from a set down yesterday to beat fast-rising Simona Halep 4-6, 7-5, 6-3 and reach the quarter-finals of the Pan Pacific Open.

The 33-year-old, who dominated women’s tennis a little over a decade ago but was diagnosed with the autoimmune disorder Sjogren’s Syndrome in 2011, warned after her match in Tokyo that she had no thoughts of retiring.

Meanwhile, second seed Agnieszka Radwanska overpowered Dominika Cibulkova 6-3, 6-4.
