Saturday at the BNP Paribas Open was marked by victories of the Williams sisters, who are now about to meet in the third round, and while our reporter Karen Helf watched Venus and Serena progress through the draw, our photographer Jimmie48 made sure to bring us photos of a number of other second-round matches, most notably the victory of defending champion and seed No.24 Elena Vesnina over Catherine Bellis 2-6 6-1 6-1, Danielle Collins‘ upset of fellow American Madison Keys, seeded 15th, 6-3 7-6(1), and fourth seed Elina Svitolina‘s elimination of Mona Barthel 6-4 6-3.
We also have photos of seed No.21 Anastasija Sevastova‘s 6-2 2-6 6-1 win over Monica Puig, twelfth seed Julia Goerges‘ 6-4 6-1 victory over Natalia Vikhlyantseva, seventh seed Caroline Garcia‘s win over Jennifer Brady 6-4 6-4 and the yet-to-be-finished encounter between Angelique Kerber and Ekaterina Makarova.
