Venus Williams beat Anastasija Sevastova to reach Indian Wells quarters

'Long way to go' for Serena Williams after defeat by sister Venus defeat at Indian Wells

Serena returned to the tournament in 2015 and Venus a year later. Venus served big when she needed to, although it was a struggle to close out the tie.

"I definitely know her well", Serena said of her sister. "Even though I haven't even played that much this year, the matches in the last year count". Venus hung on from there to end their 29th meeting.

And sister Venus complemented her: "Her level was super high". "[Losing is] definitely not less disappointing". She had that confidence after those matches what she was playing here.

In 2001, Venus withdrew minutes before their semi-final, citing an injury.

In her first match back, Serena beat Zarina Diyas, the 53rd-ranked player in the world. This led to their boycott of the tournament for more than a decade. Serena was two-months pregnant at the time, and would take the remainder of 2017 off to focus on her pregnancy.

She skipped the rest of last season, giving birth to daughter Alexis Olympia on Sept 1 and marrying Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian in November before resuming training. Serena is famed for some of her comebacks but Venus indeed held firm. It is the earliest they have faced each other since their first encounter at the Australian Open in 1998.

"It was a quick turnaround from last night when it feels like, 'Hey, this is a final to you're only in the fourth round, "' said Williams, as revealed by the New Zealand Press-based press.

After Losing To Venus Williams At Indian Wells, Serena Williams Says She Still Has 'A Long Way To Go'

Sixteen-year-old American Amanda Anisimova saw her surprising run end with a 6-1, 7-6 (2) loss to fifth-seeded Karolina Pliskova of the Czech Republic.

"Obviously, I wish it was anybody else in the draw, literally anybody", Serena said prior to the match.

"I wish it were but then again, I wish it wasn't". "She kept roaring back, I'm just lucky that I've played more matches than her right now". It was one of Serena's 41 unforced errors, including 17 on the forehand side.

Wozniacki said the court conditions were hard but she managed to make the adjustments.

Next up for the 27-year-old Dane, who needs to win the tournament and hope that top seed Simona Halep fails to reach the final, is Daria Kasatkina after the Russian defeated U.S. Open champion Sloane Stephens 6-4 6-3.

"That's going to be a huge story, maybe the story of the year", men's No 1 Roger Federer said of Serena's comeback.
