Our Jimmie48 continued coverage of the Miami Open on Sunday, photographing the remaining third-round matches, including a tight battle between Monica Puig and Maria Sakkari, Donna Vekic‘s painful and tearful fight against Danielle Collins, Venus Williams‘ marathon against Kiki Bertens in which the American saved three match points before advancing to the fourth round where she will face defending champion Johanna Konta, who progressed with much less drama, beating Elise Mertens 6-2 6-1.
Petra Kvitova, Jelena Ostapenko, Ashleigh Barty and Elina Svitolina all made the fourth round on Sunday and we have photos from those matches, while our photographer also managed to take a few shots of Simona Halep‘s doubles action alongside fellow Romanian Irina-Camelia Begu.

Venus, the living legend, is looking pretty darn good out there. She very well could take this thing. Watch out, you youngsters! The ageless queen Venus is on the court and she means business. I’d like to see either Venus, Jelena Ostapenko, or Sloane take the title. They’re all playing their best tennis out there, and I love all three of them. Although I hated to see Angie Kerber get gone, I was elated it was Sloane Stephens who made it happen. Sloane is playing some of the best tennis I’ve seen her play in a long time. However, I just don’t understand why she can’t be consistent. Her forehand is throwing fire, man! Sloane slaughtered Mugaruza, who seems to be annoyingly patterning her game after Maria “Who?” Sharapova. Wrong choice, Garbine!
