Serena has made short work of her opponents in this year’s tournament. In the first round, she blitzed the first set against Vitalia Diatchenko 6-0 before her opponent retired injured in the second set two games down. Kiki Bertens was the next to feel Serena’s power in round two. Serena had to sweat a bit in round three against Bethanie Mattek-Sands after she lost the opening set. Serena, however, battled back to win. And in her last round, Serena was back to her impeccable best, easing past Madison Keys in a brutal display.
Venus had a bit of bother in her first round game, edging Monica Puig 2 sets to 1 after losing the second set of that match. Irina Falconi also presented Venus with problems, but the Compton-born sports star overcame her by 2 sets to 1. Venus was back to her best in round three when she smashed Belinda Bencic in straight sets. And she hit form in round four, disposing of Anett Kontaveit 6-2, 6-1 with ease.
Serena has every right to be worried about her sister. Their overall head-to-head record is 15 wins for Serena to 11 wins for Venus. Serena knows she’s going to have it tough. “She’s a player that knows how to win, knows how to beat me and knows my weaknesses better than anyone,” Serena told ESPN.
