Serena Williams to launch cosmetics line

Serena Williams to launch cosmetics line

She got her first win of the year against Sorana Cirstea (6-3, 6-4) on Saturday, but she couldn't have gotten a much more hard third-round draw, as she's lost three straight and five of the last six against the 23-time Grand Slam victor.

Serena Williams and sister Venus won at the BNP Paribas Open to set up a third-round clash in the desert tournament.

Reflecting on her match with Venus that was never played at Indian Wells all those years ago, new mom Serena said Saturday: "I literally didn't even think about it".

Collins, ranked 116th and making her first appearance in the main draw, is just starting her second year on the WTA Tour.

Tennis Channel is included in the "Just Right", "Go Big" and "Gotta Have It" channel packages.

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

Venus last beat Serena in the semifinals of the Rogers Cup in 2014, in a two-hour, three-set match.

"She looked like she never lost a step", Venus said of Serena after she beat Zarina Diyas and Kiki Bertens to book her spot in the third round.

Trump said he is optimistic there will be a NAFTA deal, "I have a feeling we are going to make a deal on NAFTA". She warned that no one could win a "race to the bottom" and said the tariffs could risk "hurting everyone".

Not only is Venus now more match fit - this is her 13th WTA event over the past 12 months, and Serena's first - but the earlier in the tournament they play each other, the more it has favoured Venus.

"That's, you know, totally gone out of my mind", she said. First of all, 17 years ago seems like forever ago. And I go, 'Serena, you're doing good, you're doing good no matter what.

Barring any late surprises, the two will indeed square off for the 29th time Monday and Serena, now 36, did recall their first duel in Compton, the Los Angeles suburb about 130 miles west of Indian Wells where the siblings grew up.

Venus is enjoying a resurgence on the Tour after a string of injuries limited her playing time for several seasons.

"She gave me the trophy because I was so upset". "But I have to play a seed regardless, sooner than later most times for the next couple of tournaments".

Ukrainian Svitolina won five titles in 2017, comprising Toronto, Rome, Istanbul, Dubai and Taipei City.

The third-round match will start around 10 p.m. ET.
