Indian Wells: Williams Sisters Clash At Third Round

Indian Wells: Williams Sisters Clash At Third Round

Having to play each other in the third round, one of us is going to be gone. "So it is what it is".

Wozniacki silenced the critics earlier this year when she claimed her first Grand Slam title at the Australian Open, becoming the first Danish woman to win a major.

Serena then took center stage, needing just under two hours to dispatch Bertens, of the Netherlands, 7-6 (7/5), 7-5. But I keep going and I know that I might not be at my best yet but I'm getting there. Serena came back in 2015 only to withdraw with a knee injury before her semifinal, and Venus followed the next year.

She sealed the first set with an ace in 36 minutes and used her powerful crosscourt forehands to open up the court and put pressure on Serena. The struggle continuing before Venus drew first blood in game six after a couple of unforced errors from Serena.

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

"And then for many years we were anxious that they were going to check out early with sickness or injuries". Hopefully she decides to play a lot and enjoy herself in the process and get back to who knows how high?

Two of the biggest names in tennis - Serena Williams and Maria Sharapova - are scheduled to play their opening Miami Open matches during the day session on Wednesday, March 21. "Serena being a mom now, Venus overcame a lot of also hard situations and still playing".

After that, the sisters boycotted Indian Wells for 14 years.

After her 6-3 6-4 defeat, Serena sent out a warning that her scope for improvement is massive and she will be targeting an improvement at her next tournament.

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

The Indian Wells match was 17 years in the making.

"She gave me the trophy because I was so upset".

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

"It wasn't very easy, obviously", she said.

She fell behind 3-1 early in the second set but rallied by holding serve in the fifth game.

Elsewhere on Saturday, fourth seeded Elina Svitolina defeated Germany's Mona Barthel 6-4, 6-3. Venus clinched a 6-3 6-4 win to seal a berth in the round 16 against Anastasia Sevastova.
