Venus rises above sister Serena

Venus rises above sister Serena

"At the same time, have fun with my game, play a variation, but for the most part try to stay on the offensive".

It was the match of the tournament as with Venus taking the first set 7-5 before Serena bounced back to take the second 6-4.

In 2003, Venus and her sister Serena were two of the best tennis players in the world. "So I'm very happy how things are turning out to be". Serena fought back and scored a break to extend the match.

"It was not an easy match to figure out.She has everything in her game".

Venus was still in her pomp and with Serena, they had contested five of the six Grand Slam finals from the 2001 US Open to the 2003 Australian Open. The other victory came in Rotterdam.

According to ESPN, Venus won a 6-3, 6-4 victory.

On the men's side, Gael Monfils retired in the second set with a back injury trailing fellow Frenchman Pierre-Hughes Herbert 6-2, 3-1.

Also, American Taylor Fritz defeated Fernando Verdasco of Spain, 4-6, 6-2, 7-6 (7/1), Croatia's Borna Coric breezed past Roberto Bautista 6-1, 6-3 and Pablo Carreno-Busta of Spain, stopped Russian Daniil Medvedev 6-1, 7-5.

Serena Williams says she has "a long way to go" on her comeback after the birth of her child following defeat by sister Venus in round three at Indian Wells.

Halep said she thought Williams "should have been ranked as she left". "I really didn't know her game".


"It was a quick turnaround from last night when it feels like, 'Hey, this is a final to you're only in the fourth round, "' said Williams, as revealed by the New Zealand Press-based press. It's a little bit of everything that comes in a match that just doesn't normally happen.

Anisimova, a 16-year-old wild card, won her first three WTA Tour matches at Indian Wells, beating Pauline Parmentier, No. 23 seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova and two-time Wimbledon victor Petra Kvitova without dropping a set.

Sisters Serena Williams and Venus Williams meet on court for a coin toss before their third round match during the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, California.

The sisters arrived outside the stadium together on a golf cart then walked through the tunnel with Serena entering the court first with many in the crowd standing and cheering.

Despite the loss Serena still leads their career series 17-12.

Venus, speaking after the match, said it was hard for her to close the match as Serena's level was super high. Belgium's Clijsters appeared to be the fan favorite that day, despite the fact the siblings grew up close by in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton.

Serena Williams' first competitive singles appearance in more than a year came to an end Monday evening. She looked like Serena most of the time.

But she's a lot further along than anyone who saw her play Fed Cup doubles a month ago could have anticipated.

Wozniacki challenged a call in the final game when the line judge ruled that Sasnovich's shot caught the line.

After the thrilling Australian Open final match in 2003, the sisters met again in the final of another Grand Slam that same year.
