Serena Williams gears up to launch her own beauty line

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

"Who would have ever thought at 37 years old that you wold be back at the top of the mountain and playing this kind of tennis, what does the journey feel like to you?" the interviewer Krasny asked her after the match "Well Andrew I never go around talking about how old you are" she joked in reply. "Great way to come back".

She closed out the 1 1/2-hour match on her second match point when Serena's forehand service return sailed long.

Serena was a mere shadow of her past self and managed to win just 54 percent of her first serve points in the first set.

Venus hadn't beaten Serena since the summer of 2014 in Canada, but she had to be considered the favorite in this one given the rustiness of her younger sister's game.

This is the earliest they will face each other since that Melbourne meeting 20 years ago.

Wozniacki had been one of seven women who held the No. 1 ranking who hadn't won a Grand Slam when she triumphed in Melbourne in January.

"That's, you know, totally gone out of my mind".

Indian Wells:Serena Williams twitched the dust from a 15 month holiday from the game due to pregnancy. "Serena being a mum now, Venus overcame a lot of also hard situations and still playing".

The crowd's treatment led to a 14-year boycott by the sisters, which Serena finally ended in 2015. 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.

It was an unfamiliar situation for Serena, with Venus responding to everything thrown at her, including a pair of break points, which she saved.

The Indian Wells match was 17 years in the making.

Venus is enjoying a resurgence on the Tour after a string of injuries limited her playing time for several seasons.

"I have a lot of goals".

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

Danielle Collins also won her third round match, defeating Sofya Zhuk of Russian Federation 6-4, 6-4. She won in straight sets by 6-4, 6-4.

Fourth seed Elina Svitolina crashed out going down 7-5, 6-3 to Spain's Carla Suarez Navarro, while seventh seed Caroline Garcia of France made it through after defeating Australia's Daria Gavrilova 7-5, 6-4.
