Williams sisters set to face off at BNP Paribas Open

If you've been following Serena then you know she has always been killing it with her looks. "It's just afterward I don't like it as much".

"I'm just lucky that I've played more matches than her right now, otherwise, yeah", Venus said. Serena leads Venus 17-11 all-time and has won eight of their last nine meetings, most recently the Australian Open final a year ago.

The two were due to meet in the semi-final of 2001, but Venus Williams withdrew five minutes before the match. Let us know what you think about Serena Williams Taking on the beauty industry in the comment box below!

Serena Williams' return to tournament tennis came to an abrupt end here Monday as she crashed out of Indian Wells with a 6-3, 6-4 loss to her sister Venus.

Many points, for both players, were the result of errors: balls that went wide or long or in the net.

It was a scratchy win for the Dane, who seemed troubled by her racquets throughout the match.

Before playing official singles matches, Serena's return consisted of an exhibition loss in the offseason to Jelena Ostapenko, a Davis Cup doubles loss in February with Venus and a moderate showing at a Tiebreak Tens exhibition last week in NY.

Two decades after their first meeting on professional tour, the Williams sisters continue to be a dominant presence on the WTA circuit.

"(We are) having to play each other in the third round, one of us is going to be gone", Serena said.

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

It was an unfamiliar situation for Serena, with Venus responding to everything thrown at her, including a pair of break points, which she saved. There is obviously some rust for arguably the greatest to ever do it, but to win back-to-back matches without dropping a set is a fairly astounding feat for someone playing for the first time in 14 months. So, I'm going to wait and see what happens.
