  • Venus Williams and Serena Williams talk as they play during a match

"You know, we can always stay in the tournament longer if the both of us are in the tournament", Serena said. "She kept roaring back, I'm just lucky that I've played more matches than her right now".

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.

Against Bertens, she got in just 54 percent of her first serves and won just 63 percent of her first-serve points, leading to four breaks for her opponent. But I call this a trial run, you know.

― Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sport/Reuters picINDIAN WELLS, March 13 ― Serena Williams, playing in her first WTA tournament since giving birth in September, crashed out of the Indian Wells tournament with a 6-3, 6-4 loss to her sister Venus yesterday. I don't think I have a favorite match.

However, despite stumbling as Venus double-faulted twice and wasted a match point at 5-2 while facing a break point at 5-4, the 37-year-old still managed to close it out against the rallying Serena. And having to play each other in the third round, one of us is going to be gone. But she was really nice.

Few have handled Serena - the record 23-time grand slam victor - as well as Venus, as evidenced by their head-to-head record. "Seventeen years seems like forever ago". It is the earliest they have faced each other since their first encounter at the Australian Open in 1998. "When she's missing, it's not by much". 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. So, I'm going to wait and see what happens.
