Venus Williams moves into third round at BNP Paribas Open
epa06599565 Venus Williams (R) of the USA hugs her sister Serena Williams (L) of the USA after defeating her in their match at the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament at the IndianWells Tennis Garden in IndianWells, California, USA, 12 March 2018.
The elder of the sisters had match point at 5-3, but Serena fought back to break Venus's serve, then took the next service game.
Heading into the match, Serena said she was dreading the all-Williams matchup and you could understand why early. It's the 29th time in their careers that the sisters have met up, and so sentimental too.
However, Venus Williams had the upper hand even before the match started, as Serena was playing her first tournament in over 400 days. But Venus then served out the match to win it 6-3 6-4 and cut short her sister's return to the WTA Tour. "I just have a long way to go, and I'm looking forward to the journey".
"I have a lot of goals. I just usually play tournaments and I try to do really good in those tournaments so I don't have to play every week". 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.

"Everything is a bonus", said Serena after winning in one hour, 52 minutes on her second match point.
Most of those have been late-round matches, but this one comes under different circumstances with Serena being unranked due to her long layoff.
The 26th-seeded Gavrilova squandered a 4-2 lead in the opening set of the match, which lasted nearly two hours.
"Sometimes I get really down and feel like, Man, I can't do this", she told Vogue.
And sister Venus complemented her: "Her level was super high".
Garcia advances to the round of 16 where she will face either Elena Vesnina of Russian Federation or 10th seeded German Angelique Kerber.
However, only one of the two was at her best on Monday night.
Williams said she will write down everything she believes she needs to work on heading into Miami, rank them in order of importance and get to work making improvements to her game.
