PARIS (AP) - Venus Williams lost in the third round of the French Open for the third straight year, falling to Agnes Szavay of Hungary 6-0, 6-4 Friday.

The third-seeded Williams was playing for the third straight day at Roland Garros. She completed a three-set match Thursday that had been suspended by darkness the night before.

Williams has won seven Grand Slam titles in her career, but lost to sister Serena the only time she reached the final at Roland Garros in 2002.
