Serena Williams gears up to launch her own beauty line

Serena Williams gears up to launch her own beauty line

"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". She said their father, Richard, would probably decide - an insinuation that their matches were rigged.

"Obviously I wish it was anybody else in the draw, literally anybody, but that's OK", Serena said. "So it is what it is".

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.

Venus had a bye in the first round and reached the round of 32 by beating Sorana Cirstea in straight sets.

29 seed Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands 7-6 (5), 7-5 in the second round on Saturday in her return from a 14-month absence after giving birth to her first child. "Great way to come back". And, with two straight-set wins at Indian Wells after one-year break from competitive tennis, she looks like she's reincarnated on the WTA Tour.

Serena won 54 percent of her second-serve points and broke Bertens's serve six times. And I go, 'Serena, you're doing good, you're doing good no matter what.

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.

Isaiah Thomas looked like the player the Cavs should have never traded
James could leave Cleveland as a free agent this summer and the Lakers are tipped to land the 14-time NBA All Star. Nance scored 16 points with eight rebounds while Clarkson scored four points with four assists.

This is the earliest they will face each other since that Melbourne meeting 20 years ago.

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

"It's a huge difference to play her in the semi-finals or even the quarter-finals or a final as opposed to the third round".

You know, we can always stay in the tournament longer if, you know, the both of us are in the tournament.

The fans' reaction in California came after Venus pulled out of her semifinal with Serena just before the tussle, citing a knee injury.

Asked about the semi-final match that never happened, Serena said she has tried to forget. That's totally gone out of my mind. "Seventeen years seems like forever ago".
