Venus and Serena Williams to play each other in Bangalore Open semifinals


The Williams sisters, Venus and Serena, will face each other in the Bangalore Open semifinals, their first meeting in almost three years.

Second seed Venus advanced with a 6-4 6-3 win over Russian Vera Zvonareva, while her sister Serena, seeded third, demolished Russian Anastasia Rodionova 6-1 6-4.

World No.7 Venus and No.11 Serena, who have 14 Grand Slam titles between them, are tied at 7-7 in career meetings.

Talking about playing against her sister, Serena joked: “She is a tough player and the only chance of beating her is when she is injured. I want her leg to be broken.

Venus is nice to me all the time except when she is on court.

“I am also very competitive and I always want to win. We will have fun tomorrow.”

BTW: Venus and Serena, knowing there will be no possibility of an all-Williams final at the Bangalore Open, aimed at reaching the doubles final. However, their plan crashed as they lost in the second round already. (source: BBC)
