Federer improved to 65-5 since returning from a left knee injury past year with his third-round victory in a rare day match.

"So if she makes a mistake, a little bit of me dies". "She served very consistently. It nearly doesn't matter, but it would just be unbelievable to see her do it now".

Heading into the match, Serena said she was dreading the all-Williams matchup and you could understand why early.

"[Serena's] level is super high and it was very hard to close out the match, just getting one ball back", Venus said.

"She looked like she never lost a step", Venus said of her younger sister.

Over the years, the two sisters have played out some memorable encounters but this one is surely the most unique of the lot.

In 2001, the sisters were set to play here in the semifinals but Venus withdrew minutes before the match, citing an injury.

That Serena v. Venus match was really fun to watch...

Unbeknownst to the general public, Serena was two months pregnant when she won that title. Venus had a slight smile; Serena had a sort of a tense-looking smirk.

The first set was on serve until the sixth game when Venus broke to take a 4-2 lead.

Among all their matches, it might have been one of the ones with the more unpredictable outcome.

Serena always calls her sister her toughest opponent - even when she's going full throttle. Even with the baby, like, a trial run of traveling with the baby and all of this is just so new to me.

But Venus had played just two official tour matches so far in 2018 - both in Australia in January - and had lost both.

The early meeting is the result of Serena Williams being unranked and not being among the tournament's 32 seeded female players because of her maternity leave.

This return to tennis was such a big deal that Serena's husband, Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian, 34, took out a series of four billboards along the I-10 freeway leading from LA to Indian Wells welcoming her back.

Stephens has been in a tailspin since breaking through for last year's major win, and has failed to advance past a quarter-final this year. Her competitiveness is peerless. "When I am playing you can wear it and show support not only from me but also for my charity which supports the Yetunde Price Resource Center".
