Venus Williams v Serena Williams: Indian Wells third round

Sisterly act in offing

She takes a career head-to-head record over Venus of 17-11 into their third-round clash.

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

In 2001 they were slated to meet in the Indian Wells semi-finals when Venus withdrew, handing Serena a walkover.

The 36-year-old will battle against her older sister Venus on Monday night for a spot in the fourth round.

Charlie Pasarell, then the tournament director, said in the same USA Today story that he didn't discount Richard Williams was racially abused.

With Serena Williams coming back last week after 14 months away, she, and everyone watching, were taking it one match at a time.

She bested Zarina Diyas in straight sets in her opener, a round that Venus didn't even play in due to being seeded and getting a first-round bye.

Serena, unseeded in the wake of her long layoff, admitted she would have preferred not to come up against her sister so soon in the draw.

"That's, you know, totally gone out of my mind", she said.

"It was in juniors", said Serena. I have always been a sore loser, but she's been really unbelievable. "I love seeing something on paper and then seeing it in real life".

Other women in the draw are world No.1 Simona Halep, reigning Australian Open champion Caroline Wozniacki; seven-time Grand Slam victor Venus Williams; 2017 U.S. Open finalist Madison Keys; two-time Grand Slam victor Garbiñe Muguruza and reigning US Open champion Sloane Stephens.

Serena Williams will play her sister, Venus today (Monday) in the third round at Indian Wells as she continues her comeback after the birth of her child. "So I'm like, 'Okay, I need to not be so negative, even though it's hard", she said. I was always that girl that played with my dolls, and I went to fashion school, so it's not just made up for me.
