venus williams australian open 2017

Venus Williams has reached her first Australian Open final since 2003 in a come-from-behind win over compatriot Coco Vandeweghe.

Williams went down to a tie-break in the first set but fought back with a vengeance to take out the match 6-7 (7/3), 6-2, 6-3.

It keeps the possibility of a dream final in the women’s draw alive, with sister Serena Williams taking on Mirjana Lucic-Baroni in the second semi-final.

More to come.
