Indian Wells: Williams Sisters Clash At Third Round

Indian Wells: Williams Sisters Clash At Third Round

"I would prefer to play someone else, anybody else, literally anybody else, but it has to happen now and one of us will be going home", Serena said about the upcoming match.

Richard Williams told USA Today he suffered racial abuse and Venus would later say "she heard whatever he heard".

As well as her Aneres clothing line, Serena also helms the Signature Statement collection, a range of apparel and accessories, which is mainly sold on the Home Shopping Network (HSN). In fact, it's the first time they've met before the Round of 16 since their very first head-to-head matchup more than 20 years ago.

Indian Wells:Serena Williams twitched the dust from a 15 month holiday from the game due to pregnancy.

Serena advanced to the final and despite winning was on the receiving end of ugly jeering and boos throughout her match with Kim Clijsters.

Serena Williams set up a mouth-watering Indian Wells third round showdown against her sister Venus with a straight-sets victory over Kiki Bertens on Saturday.

Serena made a decision to return in 2015, whilst Venus came back to Indian Wells in 2016. It will be their earliest match-up at a top-tier tournament since their first encounter, Venus downing Serena at the 1998 Australian Open in the second round.

Serena and Venus Williams won't be meeting in a grand slam Monday and their match won't be a final, either. She won her first two matches in straight sets, but she was pushed by her opponents in both matches.

We don't know too much about her brand yet, but Williams has spoken in the past about the difficulties of finding makeup that can withstand her training routines, meaning it's possible she'll come out with some super-long-lasting, sweat-proof beauty items (fingers crossed).

Venus is enjoying a resurgence on the Tour after a string of injuries limited her playing time for several seasons.

"I still have a lot to give. I don't think my dad wants me to ever stop playing", the 37-year-old, seven-time Grand Slam champion said. Serena leads 17-11 - and has claimed five of their past six meetings.

The 23-year-old Svitolina advances to the third round where she will face Spaniard Carla Suarez Navarro who beat Hsieh Su-Wei, of Taiwan, 6-4, 2-6, 6-3.

The third-round match will start around 10 p.m. ET.
