Serena Williams wins in tutus at US Open

Serena Williams wins in tutus at US Open

They've played each other in the finals of all four Slams, including at the U.S. Open in 2001 (when Venus won) and 2002 (when Serena did).

Venus, a seven-time Grand Slam champions, is one of three previous winners in Wuhan, having taken the title in 2015.

The ad even shows a jubilant Richard Williams celebrating his daughter's modern-day success, and when Serena Williams spots him in the crowd, she immediately celebrates too.

Asked if she was excited, Serena responded: 'I wouldn't say it's exciting.

According to USA Today, the two sisters first matched up against one another in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open, a match which Venus won.

"It was two against one last time".

"Obviously it's early in the tournament, so both of us are going to be looking forward to continuing to play better", Venus said before Serena took the court for her match. So I think that's the toughest part for me: "When you always want someone to win, to have to beat them", Serena said. "I played so many other sports, and I was just interested in a lot of other sports and different things", said the world number 74 who faces French Open runner-up Dominic Thiem for a place in the last 16.

UEFA reveals shortlist for best player award
The victor of the men's and women's prizes will be announced at the draw for the Champions League group stage on August 30. And the thing which can't be taken away from the headlines is Lionel Messi misses out from the worthy nominations.

"I know when I play her, I have to play some of my best tennis", Serena said.

Serena wore this Virgil Abloh tutu during the first round of the US Open on Monday - just days after Bernard Giudicelli's interview made headlines. I mean, awesome really.

Serena and Venus Williams were always destined for tennis greatness, and this archive footage proves it.

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

Tournament officials said they regret that a player was given a code violation for changing her shirt on the court during a match, clarifying its rules on when that is allowed.

Elsewhere, two-time major champion Garbine Muguruza couldn't stave off an upset, leting a lead slip away in a stunning loss to 202nd-ranked Czech qualifier Karolina Muchova 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.

The 17th seed hit 13 aces and finished the match by winning 77% points off her first serves.
