Serena to battle Venus in 20-year first at US Open

Serena Williams x 2018 US Open- Day 1

Serena Williams x 2018 US Open- Day 1

And today, in her second win - this time against Germany's Carina Witthöft she wore the same outfit only this time it was in lavender.

It's the 16th time the sisters have met in a slam and the first time they will battle it out since the final of the Australian Open in 2017 when Serena was in the early stages of her pregnancy but still managed to defeat her sister.

"When I was designing [these jeans], I was inspired by that old picture from NY where the men are all sitting and all working in denim", Williams explained of the '90s-esque, medium-wash denim.

Following each of their second-round wins at the Open, both sisters were asked about what it would be like to play each other once again.

Venus beat Serena in straight sets to win the 2001 U.S. Open before Serena returned the favour in 2002 with a straight-sets win in the final to secure the championship.

Williams expressed her pleasure to return to China, stating: "I love playing in China because the fans there are so great and always really appreciative".




The reason this match comes so early is that their rankings are not what they've been in the past. "We're strongest when we cheer each other on". It's not the end of the world. "But whoever you're feeling like - me or Venus - it'll work". The No. 31 seed Verdasco took down the world's former No. 1 in four sets, beating Murray, 7-5, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, in the second round.

The third-seed fired an ace on match point to complete the comeback, which took two hours and 46 minutes on a hot and humid day on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"I think it's very fair from them to apologize to me".

Cornet said she was stunned that the furor had caused so much controversy and was happy to accept the USTA's apology.

"I was happy with a lot of things". Of course, I was surprised when I just changed T-shirt really quick and he gave me the code violation, I didn't expect it, and I told him it was pretty weird. Julia Gorges, meanwhile, found herself upset by Ekaterina Makarova in straight sets.

This was his first Grand Slam event since Wimbledon a year ago.
