MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) - Venus Williams was knocked out of the Australian Open with a 2-6, 6-3, 7-5 loss to unheralded Spanish player Carla Suarez Navarro in the second round.

Suarez Navarro, who reached the quarterfinals of last year's French Open, rallied from 5-2 down in the third and saved a match point before beating Williams.

The 20-year-old Suarez Navarro is playing in only her fourth Grand Slam tournament. Williams has won seven grand slam singles titles.
