Venus Beats Serena at Indian Wells
For the first time since 2014, Venus Williams defeated younger sister Serena, taking her down 6-3, 6-4 in the Indian Wells Masters third round yesterday in Palm Springs. The match is the sisters’ 29th since first facing off 20 years ago, and their first at Indian Wells — where they were supposed to play each other in 2001, until Venus withdrew with an injury. After Serena was booed and subjected to racial slurs from the crowd, both sisters boycotted the tournament until 2015. Venus will play Anastasija Sevastova Tuesday afternoon.
