Serena Williams defeated her elder sister, Venus Williams in two straight sets 6-1 6-2 on Friday, in what made the 30th career showdown at the ongoing US Open in New York seem more like a one-sided affair.
Serena will now play 33-year-old Estonian star Kaia Kanepi, who defeated Rebecca Peterson 6-3 7-6 in an earlier third round match.
Serena was in smoking form as she was merciless against her sister who was no match for her. Though Venus tried to salvage things, it was not just her night as Serena played her best match since her return to tennis asfter struggling to get back to form following the birth to her daughter Olympia last September.
She played pitch-perfect tennis to outlast her elder sister after 71 minutes on Arthur Ashe Stadium.
In her post-match interview, Serena showed her sister a lot of respect saying, “It’s not easy. She’s my best friend. she means the world to me. She’s supportive of my career and I’m supportive of her career. Every time she loses I feel like I do. It’s not very easy but it’s a tournament and we know there’s more to life than playing each other and playing tennis. I love her with all my heart. She’s the reason I’m here. She’s the only reason I’m still out here. After God, I definitely owe everything to her.”
