Serena And Venus Williams Prepare For Tennis Stardom In Unearthed 1991 Video

  • US Open Camila Giorgi Venus Williams top off Alize Cornet

French player Alize Cornet said the decision to ban Serena Williams from wearing a catsuit at future French Opens was "10,000 times worse" than her on-court reprimand at the US Open.

Serena added, "I never root against her, no matter what". Serena is No. 26, playing in only the seventh tournament since she was off the tour for more than a year while having a baby.

According to USA Today, the two sisters first matched up against one another in the second round of the 1998 Australian Open, a match which Venus won.

The 23-time Grand Slam victor wore compression fishnets with her tutu looks to guard against blood clots, a problem she battled soon after giving birth last September.

Serena also leads the all-time series 17-12, with 10 of those wins coming in Grand Slam matches to Venus' five - the most recent coming in the 2017 Australian Open final, when a pregnant Serena swept Venus 6-4, 6-4.

"It's early in the tournament, so both of us are going to be looking forward to continuing to play better, " Venus said. "But, whoever you feeling - me or Venus will work".

Venus, ranked 16th, advanced to Friday's third round matchup by defeating Camila Giorgi 6-4, 7-5 earlier on Wednesday.

Another commented: "If Serena Williams can nail a break point in a lavender tutu against someone thirteen years her junior in this NY heat, I guess I can put on some underwear in my apartment".

Cornet said she was stunned that the furor had caused so much controversy and was happy to accept the USTA's apology.

Serena could root without conflict during last year's U.S. Open - the first without her since 2010 - when Venus reached the semifinals for the first time since 2010, only to be ousted in three sets by eventual champion Sloane Stephens. I have some fun memories of winning Wuhan in 2015 so I'm excited that I'll get a chance to go back there. The No. 31 seed Verdasco took down the world's former No. 1 in four sets, beating Murray, 7-5, 2-6, 6-4, 6-4, in the second round. Of course, I was surprised when I just changed T-shirt really quick and he gave me the code violation, I didn't expect it, and I told him it was pretty weird. "I think we're used to it now". Nadal won 46 of 55 first-serve points and wore down Vasek Pospisil, 6-3, 6-4, 6-2, in Ashe Stadium.

Other seeded winners on the women's side included No. 8 Elina Svitolina, No.15 Elise Mertens, No 19 Anastasija Sevastova and No.23 Barbora Strycova, all in straight sets.
