Serena And Venus Williams Meet After 14-Year Tournament Boycott

Serena And Venus Williams Meet After 14-Year Tournament Boycott

Their last meeting was in the 2017 Australian Open final, where Serena beat her sister in straight sets while several weeks pregnant.

Still showing some rust from her long layoff, Serena hit just one ace and made 37 unforced errors to 32 for Bertens. "Just have to go out there and see how I am and do my best". The triumph at the BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, comes six months after childbirth. But after that fell through, the tennis player pivoted toward beauty, where it looks like she's going to stay.

Playing in her first singles tournament since giving birth to her daughter in September, Serena has already proven herself a threat with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Zarina Diyas and a 7-6 (5), 7-5 win over No. 29 seed Kiki Bertens.

The 36-year-old athlete-turned-fashion-designer is reportedly launching a cosmetics company, and to say that we're excited is a serious understatement.

Venus and Serena are scheduled to face each other after 2 p.m. ET on Monday, live on the Tennis Channel and streaming online at WatchESPN.

Raiders release OT Marshall Newhouse, CB Sean Smith
He said he was only on the field in certain packages early in the season and could not get into the flow of a game as a result. Smith was set to make $8.25 million in base salary in 2018, and his release comes with no dead money against Oakland's cap.

They met for the first time in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open which Venus won 7-6 (7/4), 6-1.

Venus did her part to set up the marquee match when she dismantled World No.35 Sorana Cirstea 6-3, 6-4 in just 79 minutes. Williams recently filed a trademark request for the name Aneres (the name of her clothing line and also Serena spelled backward) for a beauty brand with multiple product categories that could include skin care, fragrance, lipstick, eye shadow, mascara and makeup-removing products, among others.

"It's a huge difference to play her in the semi-finals or even the quarter-finals or a final as opposed to the third round".

Asked about the semi-final match that never happened, Serena said she has tried to forget.

"That's, you know, totally gone out of my mind". "First of all, 17 years ago seems like forever ago". "It's actually something that I really enjoy and that I have a lot of fun with", she told Vogue in 2015.
