Venus Williams moves into third round at BNP Paribas Open

Venus and Serena Williams

Serena Williams, playing in her first WTA tournament since giving birth in September, crashed out of the Indian Wells tournament with a 6-3, 6-4 loss to her sister Venus on Monday. I really abhor every time we play, but I do enjoy the battle when I'm out there. "So it is what it is".

Headliners in the men's field include defending Miami Open champion Roger Federer, who won his 20th major title at this year's Australian Open; six-time Miami Open champion Novak Djokovic; Australian Open finalist Marin Cilic; and former U.S. Open Champion and crowd favorite Juan Martin del Potro.

Venus' last defeat of her younger sister was at the Canadian Open in 2014, where she prevailed in a three-set semi-final.

The Dane needed two hours and 17 minutes to get past the world No.49 Belarusian.

"I have a lot to improve on", she said. "Great way to come back".

Serena Williams saw her return to action ended last night - by her sister Venus.

This summer, they will be touring together again, and their OTR II Tour will come to the East Rutherford stadium on August 2. But the '03 Bonnie and Clyde have left one country off their list that has upset a lot of fans - Ireland.

Still showing some rust from her long layoff, Serena hit just one ace and made 37 unforced errors to 32 for Bertens.

"For many years we were anxious that they were going to check out early with sickness or injuries", Federer added. Older sis - or shall we call her Auntie Venus - won this time, a 6-3, 6-4 triumph that validated the seeding and the rankings.

No matter her parental status, the newly married player still maintains her competitive spirit.

Venus Williams (L) and Serena Williams talk as they play during a match. "Serena being a mum now, Venus overcame a lot of also hard situations and still playing".

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

Serena said she is still easing her way back into match fitness.

More from Diaz "done" with acting? "I think that part of the role is something she's very comfortable with". And as far as her father is concerned, Meghan is evidently anxious that he just couldn't handle all of the publicity.

Richard Williams told USA Today he suffered racial abuse and Venus would later say "she heard whatever he heard". "Seventeen years seems like forever ago".

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

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

After losing the first four games of the match, Vesnina responded by winning five on the bounce for a chance to serve for the set.

Anastasija Sevastova, the 21st seed, beat 12th-seeded German Julia Goerges 6-3 6-3 to secure a match against Venus Williams.

The second set was more straightforward for Kerber, who will now play Caroline Garcia in the last 16 after the Frenchwoman eliminated Daria Gavrilova 7-5 6-4.
