NEW YORK (AP) Two points from defeat, Sara Errani rallied to force a third-set tiebreaker and outlasted Venus Williams in a back-and-forth match at the U.S. Open.
Errani won 6-0, 0-6, 7-6 (5) in the third round Friday after Williams had a chance to serve out the match in the final set.
Williams twice came back from down a break in the third but was done in by too many unforced errors. She had 52 in the match.
