Venus tops 4th seed Azarenka at Stanford

Venus Williams feels like the hometown girl when she plays at Stanford even though she grew up in Southern California and currently resides in Florida. ''It's nice to have that support,'' Williams said after advancing to the Bank of the West quarterfinals Thursday night, beating fourth-seeded Victoria Azarenka 6-4, 7-6 (1). ''It was good to hear the 'oohs' and 'aahs' for both of us,'' the unseeded Williams said.
