  • Sisterly act in offing

She got her first win of the year against Sorana Cirstea (6-3, 6-4) on Saturday, but she couldn't have gotten a much more hard third-round draw, as she's lost three straight and five of the last six against the 23-time Grand Slam victor.

Pic: Getty Images (Venus Williams withdrew from the 2001 tournament, which Serena Williams went on to win) Serena Williams will play her sister Venus at Indian Wells, 17 years after a scheduled meeting at the tournament sparked a 14-year boycott. Now Venus makes another unforced error from the baseline and Serena has her first break-point chance of the match. but it's wiped away quickly as Venus crushes another ace.

Sky Sports Arena will be showing the tennis live from Indian Wells, with coverage running from 6pm on Monday to 5.30am the following morning. "Great way to come back".

Venus last beat Serena in the semifinals of the Rogers Cup in 2014, in a two-hour, three-set match.

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.


When she entered the court, she was given a loud ovation from the packed arena, with many in the stadium standing and applauding her third appearance in Indian Wells in the last 17 years. 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.

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). 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.

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

Five-time Grand Slam champion Sharapova is a five-time finalist in Miami but has never won the tournament.

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.
