Tennis – US Open ’18: Serena Williams Defeats Sister; Into The Next Round
Serena Williams easily took care of her more seasoned sister Venus Williams to cruise into the US Open fourth round in New York. The 23-time Grand Slam champion, hoping to rise to Margaret Court’s untouched record of 24, required 71 minutes to win 6-1 6-2.
The American kin, matured 38 and 36, were playing for the 30th time – however, contrary to what most had expected, it was not a riveting contest.
The Williams sisters have made an uncommon on-court competition which initially started on the WTA Tour when they met at the 1998 Australian Open.
From that point forward they have won a consolidated 30 Grand Slam titles as Serena Williams step by step left her more seasoned sister’s shadow to rule Women’s Tennis.
Thus Serena has edged their no holds barred gatherings, guaranteeing her eighteenth prevail upon Venus with triumph in a late-night session on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
A hopeful swarm stuffed in to watch two of America’s most prominent donning symbols, however the climate was left level from the minute Serena broke in the 4th game of the match.
I love how Serena is getting her game back but I am so gutted for Venus. She’s had a pretty bad year and her draw this US Open was not so easy. I can only pray she improves for next year.

That was the 2nd of 5 games in succession as she wrapped up the main set in 31 minutes.
The pair’s past Grand Slam experience came in the final of the 2017 Australian Open which Serena Williams won in the early times of pregnancy, prompting Venus to joke before this match she had a superior shot since it was not “two against one”.
Serena Williams beat sister Venus in their 30th professional match. They’re both being good sports about it now, but don’t think it won’t come up again after a couple of glasses of wine during Thanksgiving dinner in a few months…#USOpen

In any case, it did not get any simpler for the two-time champion as her younger sister broke her serve twice in the second set to achieve the last 16 at Flushing Meadows for the seventeenth progressive time.
Serena Williams will now play Estonia’s Kaia Kanepi in the last 16.
