Roger Federer Hails 'Longevity And Dominance' Of Serena and Venus Williams

Williams sisters set to face off at BNP Paribas Open

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 36-year-old Serena took centre stage as she needed just under two hours to dispatch Bertens, of the Netherlands, 7-6 (7/5), 7-5 here, Saturday.

Serena Williams will play her sister, Venus today (Monday) in the third round at Indian Wells as she continues her comeback after the birth of her child.

That this is Indian Wells, a tournament that holds plenty of history for the Williams sisters, makes it an even more loaded contest.

When Serena Williams played in that year's tournament final - which she won - she was booed throughout the match.

"I would prefer to play someone else, anybody else, literally anybody else, but it has to happen now and one of us will be going home", Serena said about the upcoming match. She has won both her matches in straight sets.

"This will be the 29th time the sisters have played each other in a Women's Tennis Association match and first since the final of last year's Australian Open, when Serena Williams was a 6-4, 6-4 victor". It's against this opponent that Serena has had some career-defining moments.

Mahatma Gandhi statue in Kerala vandalised
On Tuesday night, a statue of Dalit icon BR Ambedkar was vandalised and later replaced in Meerut district of Uttar Pradesh. The police confirmed that there was no political motive behind the incident in Taliparamba.

Serena chose to return in 2015, whilst Venus came back to Indian Wells in 2016.

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.

"She looked like she never lost a step", Venus said of Serena after she beat Zarina Diyas and Kiki Bertens to book her spot in the third round.

The Williams family believed their treatment was racially motivated.

"That's, you know, totally gone out of my mind".

Now unseeded in Indian Wells, Serena has beaten her world No. 8-ranked sister 17 of the last 28 times. Williams recently filed a trademark request for the name Aneres (the name of her clothing line and also Serena spelled backward) for a beauty brand with multiple product categories that could include skin care, fragrance, lipstick, eye shadow, mascara and makeup-removing products, among others.
