Williams sisters to square off in third-round showdown

Sloane Stephens

Williams is already a four-time champion at Flushing Meadows but missed the tournament last year as she took a year off to start a family. "I feel like a superhero when I wear it", she said in a press interview shortly after wearing the outfit.

'What Bernard Giudicelli said about Serena's catsuit was 10,000 times worse than what happened to me on the court yesterday, because he's the president of French Federation and because he doesn't have to do that.

Venus emerged a 6-2, 6-4 victor, something her sister admitted she barely remembers, but Serena also revealed she reckons their individual success helps them both reach higher levels.

Following the ban from wearing a catsuit at the French Open, the tennis superstar showed up at her first game at the U.S. open, which she won, wearing a stylish black one shoulder dress with a tutu, fishnet stockings and Off-White sneakers that had her name on the outer sole.

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. Once again, it's early in the tournament.

"If I would say my true feelings, it would be bleeped out, because it was ridiculous", said Azarenka.

Two-time champion Venus beat Italy's Camila Giorgi 6-4 7-5.

"I was happy with a lot of things". Anna Wintour looked pleased as she watched Williams beat Witthoeft.

Serena Williams made it through to the third round of the US Open on Wednesday, setting up a clash with sister Venus.

"I think that part is really remarkable", Serena said.

"I felt the energy, definitely", Venus said.

The third-seed fired an ace on match point to complete the comeback, which took two hours and 46 minutes on a hot and humid day on Arthur Ashe Stadium.

"I think both of them are great athletes".

Estonia's Kaia Kanepi followed up her first round win over world number one Simona Halep by seeing off Jil Teichmann of Switzerland, 6-4, 6-3.

Other seeded winners on the women's side included No. 8 Elina Svitolina, No.15 Elise Mertens, No 19 Anastasija Sevastova and No.23 Barbora Strycova, all in straight sets.
