SEOUL, South Korea (AP) -- Venus Williams coasted into the Korea Open quarterfinals with a 6-2, 6-2 win over Thailand's Tamarine Tanasugarn on Thursday.
Despite wearing strapping on her right leg, the top-seeded Williams made short work of Tanasugarn on an overcast afternoon before heavy rain forced a suspension of play at Olympic Park with two second-round matches remaining.
"It was a good game," Williams said. "It was good to finish when we did, it was about to rain. The rain blowing in different directions made it difficult, but it was a good experience."
The Wimbledon champion played down any problems with her leg.
"From yesterday, my right calf hasn't been feeling great but I was able to play and it's fine," she said.
The Wimbledon champion will meet Marta Domachowska of Poland in Thursday's quarterfinals after defeating Severine Bremond of France 7-5, 6-2.
Defending champion Eleni Daniilidou of Greece also cruised into the final eight with a 6-3, 6-2 win over Ahsha Rolle of the United States.
