Venus won their second round clash in Australia in 1998 but Serena, bidding for a record-equalling 24th Grand Slam title, has built up an advantage over the last two decades, enjoying a 17-12 head-to-head superiority. It was a win that will pit the Williams sisters against one another in the next round, as Serena will play Venus. I'm always living in a fantasy world.

In other action, Sloane Stephens made it through after being taken to three sets by Anhelina Kalinina of Ukraine, the defending champion eventually winning 4-6, 7-5, 6-2.

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".

"It's obviously a tough match", Serena added. We would have liked to have played later but it is what it is.

Ex-pro tennis player Anne White says she knows howSerena Williams feels about the ban on her catsuit at the French Open. because she went through the exact same thing back in the '80s.

"I felt the energy definitely". "But whoever you're feeling like - me or Venus - it'll work". "That love-40 game at four all was not looking good and you guys really got me through that". "They are such different individuals and such different characters on the court". I had to make them to own them [laughs].

"With Serena, we have one of our generation's most powerful, inspiring athletes as the muse, I was trying to embody her spirit and bring something compelling and fresh to tennis", said Abloh in a statement.
