Williams sisters win to set up clash at Indian Wells

Sisterly act in offing

In 2004, Serena unveiled her own range of apparel under the label Aneres, her name spelled backwards, and it appears that she is now looking to expand the company with a range of cosmetics.

Playing in her first singles tournament since giving birth to her daughter in September, Serena has already proven herself a threat with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Zarina Diyas and a 7-6 (5), 7-5 win over No. 29 seed Kiki Bertens. "So it is what it is". After that, she's lost all three matches to Serena - including last year's Australian Open final.

Venus did her part to set up the marquee match when she dismantled World No.35 Sorana Cirstea 6-3, 6-4 in just 79 minutes.

She joined American upset winners Sachia Vickery, who beat No 3 seed Garbine Muguruza; 16-year-old wild card Amanda Anisimova, who beat No 23 seed Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova; and wild-card teenager Caroline Dolehide, a three-set victor over No 30 Dominika Cibulkova on Friday.

And when Venus, accompanied by her father Richard, took her seat to watch her sister play Kim Clijsters in the final two days later, the atmosphere turned sour. "Great way to come back".

Most of those have been late-round matches, but this one comes under different circumstances with Serena being unranked due to her long layoff.

Serena won 54 percent of her second-serve points and broke Bertens's serve six times.

In an essay for Time magazine just before her return, she made it clear she feels much of the vitriol was racist in nature.

She takes a career head-to-head record over Venus of 17-11 into their third-round clash.

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

"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".

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

The match is scheduled to start around 10 p.m. ET and will be broadcast on the Tennis Channel. The announcement drew boos from fans, who expressed doubt that she was indeed injured.
