Associated Press

Venus Williams reached the U.S. Open quarterfinals for the second time in three years with a 6-3, 3-6, 6-1 victory over Carla Suarez Navarro of Spain this morning.

The 37-year-old American is the oldest woman in the bracket. She owns seven Grand Slam titles, including two in New York in 2000 and 2001.

The No. 9-seeded Williams is trying to get to her third Grand Slam final of the season. She lost to her younger sister Serena Williams at the Australian Open and to Garbine Muguruza at Wimbledon.

Williams will meet either Muguruza or Petra Kvitova next at Flushing Meadows.
