Indian Wells: Williams Sisters Clash At Third Round

  • Williams sisters set to face off at BNP Paribas Open

The 36-year-old professional tennis player - who has five-month-old daughter Alexis Olympia with her husband Alexis Ohanian - is reportedly planning to launch a range of beauty products under the name "Aneres", which is Serena spelled backwards.

Federer, who experienced a career resurgence last year after a long injury lay-off, is happy to see them still thriving and believes Serena can emulate him by having her comeback from pregnancy be the story of the year.

A little rusty but oh so wonderful!

One would think losing to a loved one could soften the blow of defeat, especially coming off a year out of action, but Serena Williams is wired differently.

It was their earliest meeting since a 17-year-old Venus beat 16-year-old Serena in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open.

But just as Venus looked in complete control, Serena broke back to reduce the deficit to keep her hopes alive. It's the 29th time in their careers that the sisters have met up, and so sentimental too.

Venus Williams defeated Serena Williams for the first time in almost four years, getting past her younger sister 6-3, 6-4 on Monday night in the third round of the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California. However, Venus held on to her advantage and beat her sister in two straight sets for the first time since the 2008 Wimbledon final. The new mom is now unranked and has an uphill battle to regain the number one spot she held before she got pregnant. "She kept roaring back, I'm just lucky that I've played more matches than her right now".

Williams has said she spent "hours crying in the Indian Wells locker room" after the final, and would not return to the tournament until 2015. They showed her daughter's face and called Serena the G.M.O.A.T.

"She gave me the trophy because I was so upset".

"So if she makes a mistake, a little bit of me dies".

Stephens, who won her first major at Flushing Meadows last fall, lost in the first rounds at the Australian Open and in Sydney before reaching the quarterfinals at Acapulco. I think she's playing great compared to when she was younger.

That Serena v. Venus match was really fun to watch...

"Missing shots that I never miss, and so close, " Serena said. These three matches made me understand what I need to work on. I can really learn from her.
