  • Serena-Venus showdown tops Day 5 features

"The last time we played in Australia it was two against one so this time it will be fair", joked Venus of her most recent meeting with her sister at the 2017 Australian Open, when Serena won the title despite being in the early stages of pregnancy.

Venus, the 2000 and 2001 champion, made the third round for the 17th time with a 6-4, 7-5 victory over Camila Giorgi of Italy.

Six-time champion Serena eased into the third round encounter with a 6-2, 6-2 win over German world number 101 Carina Witthoeft on the back of 30 winners and 13 aces.

Serena Williams has responded to French Open officials criticizing her clothing at Roland Garros in the most Serena Williams way possible. Williams, ranked 26th, was boosted to the tournament's No. 17 seed, one spot below older sister Venus, a two-time U.S. Open victor. It's also soonest the sisters have played each other at any Grand Slam since their very first tour match, all the way back at the 1998 Australian Open.

A storm erupted after French player Alize Cornet was given a warning for quickly changing her shirt at the US Open on Tuesday after realising she had put it on back to front.

"As always we will come out and try our best".

"It's a tough match to have so early in the tournament. We bring out the best when we play each other".

She said the crowd's encouragement had helped her. "I think overwhelmingly you're seeing that women who are sports fans want that agency to be returned to women athletes". "I know the same thing is for her".

Just days after French Tennis Federation President Bernard Giudicelli said her black catsuit with clot-preventing compression tights "will no longer be accepted", Williams chose a one-armed black tutu-style dress by Off-White's Virgil Abloh to take on Magda Linette at the Open.

Azarenka, the 2012 and 2013 runner-up, made the third round for the first time in three years with a 6-1, 6-2 win against Australian 25th seed Daria Gavrilova.

"If I would say my true feelings, it would be bleeped out, because I think it was ridiculous", Victoria Azarenka said on Wednesday. "I never would have thought that we would still be playing professional".
