Williams sisters meet in Indian Wells

  • Venus and Serena Williams

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.

The tennis ace gave birth to her first child on September 1 previous year and this is her first professional tennis tournament post Australian Open 2017, in which she had clinched the title.

It was Venus' seventh appearance in the California desert, and third since 2001, after an absence of 15 years.

The match will be broadcast by Tennis Channel, which will also have coverage of all the big matches on the day.

"She looked like she never lost a step", Venus said of her younger sister.

The event reportedly started off with Kylie , who just gave birth to her baby Stormi, making a toast to Thompson. Khloe Kardashian is all set to be a mother in a couple of months and she is ready for a big family right away.

She will now take on No. 21-seeded Anastasija Sevastova in her next match with a spot in the quarterfinals on the line.

Serena won her first two matches, while Venus received a first-round bye and won her opening match. She was 10. She beat me, beat me good.

In an essay for Time magazine just before her return, she made it clear she feels much of the vitriol was racist in nature.

Ellie Sullivan, 10, of Dallas, left, and her mother, Andrea Sullivan, hold up signs for Serena and Venus Williams during a break as the sisters face one another in the third round of the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden in Indian Wells, Calif., Monday, March 12, 2018.

But eighth seed Venus was a different proposition for Serena, who cut a frustrated figure as was broken in the sixth game - the 36-year-old lacking the fluidity and accuracy to asset her authority.

Second homeowners, for example, could choose to test on the Fourth of July and Christmas if that's easier for them to remember. Since you can not replace the lithium battery, replace the entire smoke alarm according to the alarm instruct ions.

Serena subsequently stayed away from Indian Wells until 2015, while Venus didn't return until one year later. First of all, 17 years ago seems like forever ago. "Serena being a mum now, Venus overcame a lot of also hard situations and still playing".

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

"I always know that it's never over until it's over", she said. "I just want to do the best that I can". Then, it just happened, and I was like, 'I don't know.' I just dove right in.

When Serena is missing some of those shots, she says she isn't being as harsh on herself as in the past with her daughter in mind.

The sisters have often said the other tennis playing sibling is their toughest opponent. She has won each of the last three matches and leads the series, 17-11. "So I just have a long way to go, and I'm looking forward the journey".
