Venus Williams Knocked out of U.S. Open

Matthew Stockman/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  Venus Williams suffered yet another early exit in the U.S. Open, falling 6-3, 2-6, 7-6 (5) to 56th-ranked Zheng Zie Wednesday at Flushing Meadows.

This is the third year in a row that Williams has failed to advance past the second round of the tournament.  The 33-year-old Williams says that she still has plenty of matches remaining in her illustrious career.

"If I didn't think I had anything in the tank, I wouldn't be here," said Williams. "I feel like I do, and that's why I'm here."

The match lasted 3 hours, 2 minutes, tying for the fifth-longest women's match since 1970 at the U.S. Open.

"I was like, 'Wow, this is a marathon,'" Williams said.
