One of the rising players of this season Yulia Putintseva had another great victory at the Volvo Car Open to book her place in the last eight. World no.61 from Kazakhstan stunned former no.1 Venus Williams whom she was beaten in all their previous three meetings.
Following an upset over 15th seed Sabine Lisicki, Putintseva knocked out the 3rd seed 7-6(5), 2-6, 6-4 after a three-hour marathon. Putintseva, who scored her second top 20 win in 2016, will next take on 5th seed Sara Errani for a place in the semifinals in Charleston.
