  • US Open Camila Giorgi Venus Williams top off Alize Cornet

"The last time we played in Australia it was two against one so this time it will be fair", joked Venus of her most recent meeting with her sister at the 2017 Australian Open, when Serena won the title despite being in the early stages of pregnancy.

The 23-time Grand Slam champion said the outfit made her feel like a "superhero" at Roland Garros this year. I've never owned a pair of jeans that didn't have stretch in them; I couldn't fit them.

Asked if she was excited, Serena responded: 'I wouldn't say it's exciting. It's also soonest the sisters have played each other at any Grand Slam since their very first tour match, all the way back at the 1998 Australian Open.

Following the ban from wearing a catsuit at the French Open, the tennis superstar showed up at her first game at the United States open, which she won, wearing a stylish black one shoulder dress with a tutu, fishnet stockings and Off-White sneakers that had her name on the outer sole. We're both going to come out per usual and play our best in front of you guys. So I think that's the toughest part for me: "When you always want someone to win, to have to beat them", Serena said. Anna Wintour looked pleased as she watched Williams beat Witthoeft. "They are totally shocking for me", she said.


"Plant-based tennis champion (and new mom) Serena Williams has launched vegan clothing line Serena to inspire confidence in women pressured by society to seamlessly juggle career and family responsibilities".

The French number two said: 'We still have some people, like the president of my federation that lives in another time and can still do these kind of comments.

She took advantage of errors from Stephens to win the first set and then fought back from 4-1 down in the second set to level at 5-5 but the American held firm to win her ninth successive match at Flushing Meadows. So I think that's the toughest part for me. "I think the umpire was probably overwhelmed by the situation".

Elsewhere, two-time major champion Garbine Muguruza couldn't stave off an upset, leting a lead slip away in a stunning loss to 202nd-ranked Czech qualifier Karolina Muchova 3-6, 6-4, 6-4.
