Rising Venus reaches hallowed 700 club Venus Williams beat Julia Goerges at the Wuhan Open to reach 700 career wins on Tuesday, the only active women's player to achieve the milestone other than her sister Serena.

Martina Navratilova (1,442 wins), Chris Evert (1,309) and Steffi Graf (902) head the list, while Serena William 700 in April and is now on 737.

Williams shows few signs of slowing down and she said she now had her sights set on next year's Rio Olympics, where she will hope to add to her haul of four gold medals. "The Olympics -- that will be awesome to be able to play there, represent the US again. That will be an honour," she said....
