Sania Mirza, currently ranked 100th, dug in and took Family Circle Cup second seed Venus Williams to 3 sets in an exciting 2 and a half hour Round 2 match.
Venus Williams : “These kind of matches are great to pull out, I’ve been in these situations before, so I rely on that.”

While Williams struggled, it was a big day for fellow American Melanie Oudin, who advanced to the third round with a 7-5, 6-0 victory over No 29 Aleksandra Wozniak of Canada, seeded ninth. Oudin will face 13th-ranked Marion Bartoli of France in the next round of the $1 million Family Circle Cup.

No. 5 seed Caroline Wozniacki defeated Alla Kudryavtseva 6-3, 6-3, while Patty Schnyder, the No. 8 seed, was eliminated by Elena Vesnina 2-6, 7-6 (5), 7-5. No. 10-seeded Shuai Peng advanced with a 7-5, 2-6, 7-5 victory over Akgul Amanmuradova.
