Colin Montgomerie believes Rory McIlroy is the favourite for Masters victory after the world No 3 rallied to finish his second round strongly at Augusta. McIlroy, who could complete the Grand Slam with victory this week, recovered from a slow start to fire three birdies along his closing stretch to move within one of overnight leader Jordan Spieth.That late run closed a one-under 71 to lift McIlroy up in to outright second, setting up a third-round shoot-out against the defending champion, and Montgomerie expects the momentum to be with the Northern Irishman. McIlroy was one of only four players to break par on Friday He was three under from the 11th tee onward and no one was like that all day, Montgomerie told Sky Sports. Everyone was making mistakes on that back nine apart from Rory McIlroy.He has come right back in to this with vengeance. I think at one stage he was eight shots behind and now theres one. Thats massive and youve got to think with momentum playing such a big part in tournaments McIlroy is your favourite.Click on the video above to hear more of Colin Montgomerie reviewing the second round action with Sarah Stirk at the Sky Cart Also See: Rory leads Spieth by one Spieth: Should have been lower When can I watch the Masters?

LONDON -- For 2 1/2 hours, Venus Williams traded big serves and hard groundstrokes with Petra Kvitova on Centre Court. Williams was playing with some of the power and pace that had brought her five Wimbledon titles. But when it was over, she was left with a sense of disappointment. "The battle is always a little more enjoyable when you win," Williams said Friday after coming within two points of victory but losing 5-7, 7-6 (2), 7-5 to Kvitova, the 2011 champion. All four of their previous meetings went to three sets and this one was no different, with plenty of suspense, intensity, and only a few break points. Williams looked stronger early in the match and was up 5-4, 15-30 on Kvitovas serve, in the second set. But the Czech came up with some big serves, held and won the second set tiebreaker. The players then held serve for the first 11 games of the third set before Kvitova broke No. 30 Williams for the first time in the last game. "Its a shame there had to be a loser in this match and more of a shame that it had to be me," Williams said. Despite the loss, Williams had reasons to feel positive about her week in London. At the age of 34, she has been playing well this season, winning a title in Dubai and reachiing the final in Auckland and Miami.dddddddddddd This week, she got to the third round at a Grand Slam tournament for only the second time in her past 10 appearances. After her battle with Kvitova, she reiterated that retirement is not in her plans. More than that, Williams still believes in her ability to add to her total of seven Grand Slams. "People have been trying to retire me since I was like 25. For some reason in tennis we always do that to our players. Its weird," said Williams, who disclosed three years ago that she was diagnosed with an energy-sapping autoimmune disease. "We dont encourage them to stick around," she added. "Its like, Get out of here. So Im not getting out of here. I think this year has been a great year for me. Ive had some tough losses, but Ive learned a lot from them. Im finding my way back on my feet. Im proud of myself for what Im achieving on the court." The former No. 1 is next scheduled to play in Cincinnati and Montreal. She said she might add more tournaments to her summer schedule to keep improving her game. "So that way Ill just have a chance, when its really time to play good tennis, I would have had those matches under my belt," she said.
