Venus Williams and Serena Williams talk as they play during a match

Venus had a bye in the first round and reached the round of 32 by beating Sorana Cirstea in straight sets.

WTA Indian Wells is on Tennis Channel Plus.

Serena, who had been out of the game because of her daughter's birth last September leads the career head-to-head record over Venus 17-11 as both will be facing each other for the first time since the 2017 Australian Open final. "Great way to come back". Then she faced the tough Kiki Bertens, and Serena made it through that match in straight sets as well.

It will be their 29th match against each other, but first ever at the BNP Paribas Open.

"That's totally gone out of my mind", she said.

When she entered the court, she was given a loud ovation from the packed arena, with many in the stadium standing and applauding her third appearance in Indian Wells in the last 17 years. And I go, 'Serena, you're doing good, you're doing good no matter what. "Seventeen years seems like forever ago".

"It's a huge difference to play her in the semi-finals or even the quarter-finals or a final as opposed to the third round".

We don't know too much about her brand yet, but Williams has spoken in the past about the difficulties of finding makeup that can withstand her training routines, meaning it's possible she'll come out with some super-long-lasting, sweat-proof beauty items (fingers crossed).

"She's playing really well and just honing her game".

Talking about competing in the upcoming Grand Slams tournament, Serena was quoted as saying, "If I want to play in those grand slams and play well then now is the ideal time to start".

Venus won 61 percent of her first-serve points and broke Cirstea's serve six times.

Defending champion, Elena Vesnina of Russian Federation also moved into the third round after she beat American Catherine Bellis 2-6 6-1 6-1.
