Indian Wells: Williams sisters to face each other

  • Indian Wells: Williams sisters to face each other

Svitolina won five titles in 2017, comprising Toronto, Rome, Istanbul, Dubai and Taipei.

Venus Williams, seeded eighth, went first, defeating Sorana Cirstea, 6-3, 6-4, to record her first tour victory of 2018.

Serena Williams made a successful return in her first competitive match since giving birth in September with a win over Zarina Diyas at the BNP Paribas Open.

"I think it's a huge difference to play her in the semifinals or even the quarterfinals or a final as opposed to a third round", Serena Williams said. "So it is what it is".

It was a blistering encounter between the 23-time Grand Slam champion and Bertens, who was a former French Open semi-finalist.

After finding out she was playing her sister in the next round, Serena said: "I would prefer to play someone else, anybody else, literally anybody else, but it has to happen now".

"#GMOAT (Greatest mother of all time) back to work tonight", he wrote in a caption on Instagram.

Williams is unseeded at Indian Wells, which is why she had to play the first round while the seeds, including sister Venus, enjoyed a bye. She was already eight weeks pregnant at that time. Bertens levelled at 5-5 but Serena created further opportunities redirecting her forehands to wreak havoc.

Serena Williams owns a 17-11 record against Venus Williams, having taken the most recent matchup in the final at Melbourne past year. This is the earliest they will face each other since then.

Saturday's match was a struggle at times for Serena as she looks to regain her rhythm after an extended layoff. Williams could potentially meet older sister Venus in the third round if both win their next matches.

Last year, during the party, to celebrate the title, she met Dmitry Tursunov.

Serena boycotted the event until 2015.

It was Venus' seventh appearance in the California desert, and third since 2001, after an absence of 15 years. Bertens managed to break again, however, earning the chance to serve for the set at 5-4 but her serving woes continued as Williams responded with a tie-break on the horizon. "When you're a professional athlete, this has to be somewhere all the way back of your mind" she said, as the WTA website reported.

I love Williams with the slightly ungainly fervour of a teenage pop crush. Bertens is a risky if erratic opponent, quite capable of handling Williams's power and providing plenty of her own.

Kvitova won the Qatar Open last month and has defeated six top-10 players this year.

She was joined by defending champion Elena Vesnina, who survived a scare to progress 2-6, 6-1, 6-1 against Catherine Bellis.
