The seven-time Grand Slam champion won her opening match on Saturday held at Indian Wells, California, in straight sets, 6-3, 6-4, and now faces the victor between her younger sister Serena Williams, 36, and No. 29 seed Kiki Bertens of the Netherlands in the next round, reports Xinhua news agency.

WTA Indian Wells is on Tennis Channel Plus.

"I would prefer to play someone else, anybody else, literally anybody else, but it has to happen now and one of us will be going home", Serena said about the upcoming match.

The sisters first played each other competitively at the Australian Open way back in 1998, with Venus triumphing in straight sets.

Venus and Serena were set to play against each other in the semi-finals of the tournament that year however Venus withdrew moments before that game with an elbow injury.

She takes a career head-to-head record over Venus of 17-11 into their third-round clash.

Eddy Cue: Apple Music reaches 38 million subscribers
South Africans already have a wide choice of streaming options, from Google Play Music to Apple Music, and Simfy Africa to Deezer. The big question, though, remains whether or not Apple Music will ever be able to eclipse Spotify .

Playing in her first singles tournament since giving birth to her daughter in September, Serena has already proven herself a threat with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Zarina Diyas and a 7-6 (5), 7-5 win over No. 29 seed Kiki Bertens.

Venus enjoyed a resurgent 2017 season, but she began this year with losses to Angelique Kerber in Syndey and Belinda Bencic at the Australian Open.

Venus' last defeat of her younger sister was at the Canadian Open in 2014, where she prevailed in a three-set semi-final.

Serena made a decision to return in 2015, whilst Venus came back to Indian Wells in 2016.

The Williams family believed their treatment was racially motivated.

Most of those have been late-round matches, but this one comes under different circumstances with Serena being unranked due to her long layoff. Williams recently filed a trademark request for the name Aneres (the name of her clothing line and also Serena spelled backward) for a beauty brand with multiple product categories that could include skin care, fragrance, lipstick, eye shadow, mascara and makeup-removing products, among others. "We can always stay in the tournament longer if the both of us are in the tournament".

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