My best is still a long way off: Serena

  • Williams sisters set to face off at BNP Paribas Open

This was Serena's first time on the WTA Tour since ending a 14-month absence, during which she married Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, and gave birth to daughter Alexis Jr.

It was the earliest the Williams sisters have met in a tournament since their first encounter at the Australian Open back in 1998.

Serena Williams' first official tournament since becoming a mom in September was cut short by older sister Venus in Indian Wells.

She missed a handful of basic shots in the first set and couldn't get her serve going the way she typically did in the past.

Former world number one Serena Williams remarked that she has "a long way to go" in her comeback bid after suffering defeat at the hands of sister Venus at Indian Wells, on Monday.

Venus told reporters that she never counted the 23-times grand slam champion as out of the match.

"I haven't played in over a year". I think I have played more matches in the previous year.

Kompany eyes once in a lifetime opportunity
Stoke did begin aggressively in the hope of suffocating City but the visitors soon stretched them by playing a few longer passes. City cruised to a straightforward 2-0 win over Stoke City on Monday, with David Silva scoring both goals at the bet365 Stadium.


It's good to have them both back at the Indian Wells, after they boycotted the tournament since a racism incident in 2001.

Tenth seed Venus moves on to the round-of-16 where she was due to face Anastasija Sevastova, who defeated 12th seed Julia Georges 6-3, 6-3. But from then on Venus made fewer mistakes and took a commanding lead. "It's just afterwards I don't like it as much". Finally, though, they buried the hatchet, Serena returning in 2015, Venus in 2016, and this year, they would at last play each other on centre court, and with still more history behind them.

And it's the first time it would have happened since 2002 Wimbledon, when Venus was No. 1 and Serena was No. 2.

"She put very high pressure on Serena from the start, playing fast and aggressive and with a lot of success", Mouratoglou said. It was one of Serena's 41 unforced errors, including 17 on the forehand side. "It's always disappointing to me to lose to anyone".

'So I have just got to keep saying at each tournament that my goal is just to be better than the last. "I want to continue to go forward". Even with the baby, like, a trial run of traveling with the baby and all of this is just so new to me.

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.
