Indian Wells: Serena and Venus Williams meet after 14-year tournament boycott


The Williams sisters have played each other many times before (Picture: AP)When is Serena vs Venus?

"She's had such a good year last year and playing fantastic tennis", Serena said of her sister.

Serena won the 2017 Australian Open final over Venus while about eight weeks pregnant, and from then on was inactive in singles competition until her opener at Indian Wells.

In 2001 they were slated to meet in the Indian Wells semi-finals when Venus withdrew, handing Serena a walkover.

Aguero doubtful for Stoke game after training ground injury
Aguero has been in sensational form this season with 30 goals in all competitions, 21 of those coming in the league. City medical staff have carried out further tests and informed Aguero that he will return in around two weeks.

"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 said.

With Serena Williams coming back last week after 14 months away, she, and everyone watching, were taking it one match at a time.

Presently unseeded Serena was the world No.1 when she began her long vacation from the game, following her victory at the 2017 Australian Open, where she was already expecting daughter Alexis Olympia, who was born in September.

It is Serena that holds the better of the head-to-head between the siblings, with 17 wins to her name compared to Venus' 11.

Russia Hypersonic Missile Tested Successfully
Putin revealed a range of intercontinental ballistic missiles, underwater drones and nuclear-powered cruise missiles. The passenger involved in the incident was drunk and the plane would continue to Turkey.

Serena chose to return in 2015, whilst Venus came back to Indian Wells in 2016. In other matches, fifth seed Dominic Thiem beat Greek 19-year-old Stefanos Tsitsipas 6-2, 3-6, 6-3 while South African seventh seed Kevin Anderson overcame Russian Evgeny Donskoy 7-5, 6-4.

Charlie Pasarell, then the tournament director, said in the same USA Today story that he didn't discount Richard Williams was racially abused.

Now unseeded in Indian Wells, Serena has beaten her world No. 8-ranked sister 17 of the last 28 times.

In 2004, Serena unveiled her own range of apparel under the label Aneres, her name spelled backwards, and it appears that she is now looking to expand the company with a range of cosmetics.

Trump also used the speech to double down on executing drug dealers, a solution he said has worked in China and Singapore. Polls indicate the race could swing to either party. "After the meeting you may do that, but now we have to be very nice".

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).
