US Open 2018: Another Serena-Venus Williams Clash 

Serena Williams overpowered German Carina Witthoeft 6-2 6-2 to set up a third-round clash with big sister Venus at the US Open on Wednesday. 

“It’s always such a great crowd at night. It’s just amazing to play in front of this crowd,” she said courtside after her victory. “I was happy with a lot of things.” 

Next up is a 30th career meeting between Serena and her elder sister Venus, who beat younger sister in their most recent encounter at Indian Wells earlier this year.

“It’s so young in the tournament, but it is what it is. It’s not the end of the world. We would rather have met later. We’re both going to come out per usual and play our best in front of you guys. “Normally, I would say cheer for me. But, whoever you feeling — me or Venus will work.”

Venus Williams beat Italy’s Camila Giorgi 6-4 7-5 in the U.S. Open second round on Wednesday to set up a possible third-round match against her younger sister Serena. Venus, seeded 16th, powered through the first set but appeared to lose energy toward the end of the second in broiling conditions inside the newly built Louis Armstrong Stadium.

She said the crowd’s encouragement had helped her. “I felt the energy, definitely,” Venus said. “That love-40 game at four-all was not looking good and you guys really got me through that.” Venus Williams won US Open in 2000 and 2001.
