By Sandor Peto and Krisztina Than BUDAPEST (Reuters) - Migrants trickled across Hungary’s border into Austria on Saturday, swept west on buses by an overwhelmed government that had vowed to stem their tide but gave up in the face of defiant crowds that set out on foot for western Europe. A Reuters photographer saw dozens of migrants, among them refugees from the Syrian war, walk into Austria, which said it had agreed with Germany to grant them access, regardless of European Union rules. The Keleti railway terminus in the Hungarian capital, for days a campsite of migrants barred from taking trains west to Austria and Germany, rapidly emptied as smiling families boarded a huge queue of buses, leaving behind them scattered shoes, clothes and mattresses.
A tested Serena Williams battled through her own mistakes and the tension of her quest for tennis history to reach the US Open fourth round. The 33-year-old American fought back to defeat 101st-ranked compatriot Bethanie Mattek-Sands 3-6, 7-5, 6-0 at Arthur Ashe Stadium and needs only four more triumphs to complete the first calendar Slam since Steffi Graf in 1988. Williams struggled with her serve early and made half her 28 unforced errors in the first set, but found her form late in the second set and dominated from there.
