Venus Williams moves into third round at BNP Paribas Open

Sisterly act in offing

"Obviously I wish it was anybody else in the draw, literally anybody, but that's OK", Serena said.

Venus has only beaten Serena once since 2009, but the younger sister has just returned after becoming a mother.

As well as her Aneres clothing line, Serena also helms the Signature Statement collection, a range of apparel and accessories, which is mainly sold on the Home Shopping Network (HSN). "Seventeen years seems like forever ago".

In 2001 they were slated to meet in the Indian Wells semi-finals when Venus withdrew, handing Serena a walkover.

Tennis star Serena Williams is planning to launch her beauty line and has filed legal documents to trademark her product line.

Serena Williams will play her sister, Venus today (Monday) in the third round at Indian Wells as she continues her comeback after the birth of her child. "Great way to come back".

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.

The sisters first played each other competitively at the Australian Open way back in 1998, with Venus triumphing in straight sets. I have a long way to go.

When she entered the court, she was given a loud ovation from the packed arena, with many in the stadium standing and applauding her third appearance in Indian Wells in the last 17 years.

We don't know too much about her brand yet, but Williams has spoken in the past about the difficulties of finding makeup that can withstand her training routines, meaning it's possible she'll come out with some super-long-lasting, sweat-proof beauty items (fingers crossed).

"She's playing really well and just honing her game. I don't think my dad wants me to ever stop playing", the 37-year-old, seven-time Grand Slam champion said. She has won each of the last three matches and leads the series, 17-11.

In other women's matches, world number two Caroline Wozniacki steamed her way into the third round with a 6-4, 6-1 win over Lara Arruabarrena, wild card Danielle Collins surprised fellow American Madison Keys 6-3, 7-6 (9/7) and seventh seeded Caroline Garcia cruised past Jennifer Brady 6-4, 6-4.
